The Thailand Korfball Association (TKA) held training courses for referees and coaches at the Sports Centre of Srinakharinwirot University, as the International Korfball Federation (IKF) look for an invitation to the 2023 Southeast Asian Games in Cambodia.
The IKF level one courses for both coaches and referees were held to try and enhance the level of korfball skills in the Southeast Asian region.
Approximately 70 people from countries including Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, The Philippines, Singapore, Chinese Taipei and Thailand took part in the courses.
This was a record-breaking number of participating countries at an IKF level one coach and referee course.
Training sessions for the Thailand under-16, under-19 and open national squads were also held.
Along with the training courses, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by TKA President Supranee Kwanboonchan and IKF Asia President Inglish Huang.
The objective of the MoU is to promote korfball as a sport for all and a leading sport in Thailand.
Kwanboonchan also said he will help grow korfball in the Southeast Asian region through his other role as President of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations' Council of Physical Education and Sport.
The IKF hope that this promotional work will result in korfball being invited to the 2023 Southeast Asian Games in Cambodia.
