IKF European Championship Round 1 2017
Compiled from: 
Hungary and Serbia Qualify for 7th IKF European Korfball Championships. Ireland placed in First Reserve and Qualified after Russia Withdrew.
Korfball is a Dutch variation on Basketball or Netball. Teams are evenly split between men and women, and positions are fixed in zones like in Netball. After two scores by either side the attackers and defenders swap roles, making it a total tam game. Each score is worth 1 Goal.
The IKF European Championships Round 1 are the Qualification Round for the IKF European Championship Finals. In 2016 Ireland failed to Qualify, finishing a disappointing 5th of 6 with 1 win from 5 matches.
Ireland did, however, qualify for the 2018 IKF European Korfball Championship Finals, after Russia withdrew. The Irish team won 3 of its 5 matches, and finished 3rd of 8, making up for the previous qualifying round in 2016.
