Basingstoke win at Didcot Tournament

As the summer season draws to a close for another year, last Saturday was the Didcot Dragons tournament, attracting teams from as far away as Wales and Kent. 16 teams battled it out for pride, sweets and a bottle of Prosecco. With most of the Division 1 sides attending, hopes were high for a local winner. 

Abingdon narrowly missed out on a final place in a penalty shoot-out, but secured third place against Southampton City. A tense final between visitors Bearsted and local champions Basingstoke Bulls went down to golden goal. After some near misses at both ends, Adam from Basingstoke scored the winning goal.

Oxford Uni and Abingdon at a tournament in Slovakia

Two clubs from OKA, Oxford University and Abingdon Atoms, have travelled to Slovakia where they competed against Dutch, Belgian, Hungarian and Slovak teams at the International Korfball Tournament in Nitra, Slovakia.  The main tournament was played on Saturday where Oxford University with few Oxford Isis players secured 8th place while Abingdon Atoms finished 9th.  On Sunday the beach korfball tournament was played and neither of the teams managed to get to the play-offs but recorded wins against both Belgians and Dutch.

OKA AGM details and committee role information

The OKA AGM will be held on Sunday 8th June from 2pm at the Railway club in Didcot.

AGM details have been distributed to clubs, so please talk to your committee for further details.

A copy of the OKA committee role descriptions document is now available in the admin section of the website or by clicking HERE.

A number of the committee are stepping down this year, so if the OKA is going to continue to be able to support OKA korfball and run the OKL and OKA cup, we need your help.

Please read the document and consider whether you can help out OKA korfball. The more people who help out the less work there is for each person.

Thanks!

 

OKL 2014 Playoff results

The OKL playoffs took place on Sunday 11th May. Reading Uni had aready been relegated to OKL div 2 (North) but Oxford Uni were in a 3 way playoff with Farnborough (Div 2 south winners) and Abingdon 2 (Div 2 North winners) to see which two teams would be in Division 1 next season.

 

With Farnborough winning both their matches they were guaranteed a place in Div 1 to go with their recent OKA Cup win.

Abingdon 2 then took on Oxford Uni to determine if Uni were to be relegated to Div 2 (North) next season.

Uni took an 8 - 2 lead into half time, and with the second half a draw at 5 goals each, Uni survived in Division 1 with the final score at 13 - 7

 

Well done to Farnborough and Oxford Uni. Well done also to Abingdon who so nearly had two teams in the top Division.

It's great to see the level of Korfball constantly increasing in the OKA !

 

 

Farnborough win OKA Cup, Oxford Uni take OKA Plate

Teams from across the OKA area met in Abingdon recently to compete in the finals of the 'Chris Carter Memorial Cup', and the 'Oxfordshire Korfball Association Plate'.

Following a preliminary round the teams split into two groups, with Oxford University eventually winning the morning's Plate competition after a great final against Southampton.

In the afternoon the match results setup an excellent final between Farnborough and Basingstoke, with Farnborough pulling ahead to take the Chris Carter Memorial Cup.

 

Congratulations to all the teams taking part, as well as to those who put in so much time to organise the event, referee matches, and support their clubs.
