Bristol Post Sports Awards – Finalists

This was the spiel that got us nominated
Bristol Thunder Korfball Club were founded in 2011 and in three years have grown from 7 players to 40. This season the first team won the Western Regional League, involving clubs from Cardiff, Oxford, Basingstoke, Southampton, Gloucester and Bristol, This enabled us to qualify for the Champions Trophy which involved a playoff of 5 clubs for promotion to the England Korfball Premier League, the club came 2nd to unfortunately fall short.
Our 3rd team gained promotion from South West 2 to South West 1 and we created a 4th team to allow more people to experience Korfball in Bristol.

We did not win but were up against a Football and Basketball team, but it was great publicity for the Club and a lovely dinner with the Who’s who of Bristol Sport for Beth, Dan, Kevin and Sianne.
