He’s already so good he doesn’t need to look where he passes and is on track to get the most number of blams Highbury has ever seen. We had a chat with Ross to find out what it’s been like starting korfball and his best moments at the club so far.
Where did you hear about korfball?
First of all, I am very proud and honoured to be considered for this, it’s something I have dreamed of since a young age. I’d like to thank my family for their support, my coaches for their patience in repeatedly explaining the rules and finally my team mates for allowing me to fulfil my potential.
I heard of korfball through a friend. I was up for something new and random so I came along. Then when I turned up the first person I saw was Craig who I knew from uni but we’d not kept in touch for years.
How have you found the social side of Highbury?
The social side is really why we’re here. London has all the sports in the world but korfball, and especially Highbury, is definitely the most sociable sport I’ve been in.
Best korfball moment of the summer?
Best summer moment is either winning a match on penalties, or the massive parties after the tournaments.
What are you most excited for this season?
I’m excited to see the talent of the girls. Fortunately we are blessed with an array of beautiful women in both physique and personality…hahaha okay properly. I’m excited for the new season to see what team I can get into and also to hopefully develop strong partnerships with my team mates.
If you’re looking to start a new sport or meet new people, get in touch! We’re looking for korfers of all levels to join Highbury, and we would love to hear from you.
