Auckland Korfball has given birth to the latest Korfball playing region in NZ - Counties Manukau and welcomes them into the New Zealand regional competition.
The initial ground work for the new region was laid down by members of the Auckland region at the end of last summer at the MaxOut sporting event. Since then Counties has evolved and now counts some ex Auckland players, some new to NZ Korfball players now living in the Manukau region and some players totally new to the game amongst their number. Under the guidance of Auckland's Manager Christine Clark and U23 National Player Scott Bouvaird the first session was held in September with an attendance of over 30 players.
Since then Counties has found a coach in Sanet Krige, entered a team into the Auckland Korfball Spring league and formally developed into it's own region in it's own right in Mid October
Counties first competitive outing as a region will be at the upcoming Auckland NPC being held at the Mt Wellington Indoor Netball centre on the 10th & 11th of November.
