10th September - Who won what at the end of season awards
The end of season awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the year just gone and to look forward to the new one. Congrats to everyone who got one (whether an official or a 'fun' award) - 2016/17 was such a good season for our club & I'm sure 17/18 will be even better!
Take a look at who won what on the results page.

2nd September - Happy 10th birthday to us!
Last night we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the founding of Oxford Isis Korfball Club with a good few drinks, and some classic end of season awards! Pete gave a superb speech and we're now ready to make our 11th year the best yet! Have a look at some of the photos of the evening on the Photos page.
23rd August - Didcot tournament report
The first team won all their matches in the morning and in the afternoon lost only to teams above us. These were very strong teams and we still gave them good games and took them on without any fear. None of the OKA sides (including Oxford City, Oxford Uni, Southampton Spartans and Didcot) came anywhere near us in terms of goal score or performance on the pitch, whether in attack or defence, and we deservedly beat them all by our own brand of korfball which was so enjoyable to watch. This was the first time Ellie played competitive matches with first teamers and she did brilliantly being mobile, reliable and creating chances as well as scoring; MattC and DanC scored lots of goals and their division produced lots of chances and movement. The other division around Pete, Frances and DanF did brilliantly too being taller and more physically dominant they bossed their opponents with ease. Chiya, Debbie and AnnieB (+Becca at the start) were moving between divisions added the mix of experience, speed and agility. No surprise the team ended in 4th place (out of 16) which is the best result in many years.
The second team was great to watch from the start and the best way to describe it was ‘daring’ which is a great way to be in korfball as it helps you to improve very quickly. They did create tons of chances and were all very dynamic, and the only problem was that they kept losing players due to injuries and family commitments, and therefore couldn’t continue in their style of play until the end of the tournament. David was unrelenting in his will to make an impact, Joe kept running past his opponents at will, while Andrew surprised only few with the long shot goals while Carlos and Diana did create a lot of space in their divisions. They all offer a lot of promise to the club and the hunger for ball, shots, goals, feeds and collects was spectacular. The final 16th place doesn’t reflect the amazing korfball that was being produced and if we were luckier with some of the shots, we would deserve a lot higher placing.
Oxford Isis Korfball Club was set up in 2007 (happy 10th birthday to us!) and has been showing the rest of the world how it's done since then!
Our three mixed teams play regular games and have plenty of social events, and we're always on the lookout for new recruits.
Join us, won't you?
