Korfball came to Preston in the last few days with the club hosting their first tournament.

It took place in Freckleton and saw Preston Korfball Club compete against teams from across the North West.

Preston unfortunately couldn’t win their own tournament, with Manchester Warriors the victors – beating Manchester City in the final.

The tournament was blessed with blazing sunshine. Korfball was started in the Netherlands more than 100 years ago.
