Korfball is a game for everyone. Men and women of all ages can play. The first thing you need is a pitch (court), divided into two halves called zones. Add two korfball posts (3.5m), two baskets, one ball and two teams of eight players: two men and two women of each team in each zone (attack and defence). With one referee the game is ready to start.
The game is fairly simple. You score when you throw the ball through the other team's basket. After two goals the teams change zones: the defenders become attackers and attackers defenders.
Birmingham City have two teams : the first team plays in the Central England Korfball League and the second team in the West Midlands Korfball League.
Arboretum in Highbury Park
For Queen Elizabeth II's 40th jubilee, an arboretum was planted in Highbury Park. It has got trees from around the world planted up in it and is very pleasant to stroll around on a nice sunny day. I don't even think many locals are aware of its existance, but that makes it even more off the beaten track!
It's located just off Yew Tree Road, Moseley, which in turn is the road that Highbury Hall is on.
There is so much to do in...
There is so much to do in Birmingham even at night. There is pbviously Birmingham University and so there are alot of clubs open and pubs. However there are also many beautiful theaters where you can see some lovely performances ranging from dancing to acting!
It has absolutely everything! Usual casual but still a bit dressy!
All roads lead to Birmingham...
Birmingham has a large International Airport and several large rail interchnges, with Birmingham New Street being the largest
The buses are a pretty good and cheap way of getting around, though not the most attractive way. We also have a Metro system which runs from Snowhill train Station to Wolverhampton. But by far the best way to get around the city center is on foot.
Best Chippy in Town
This place has been around since 1949! They have a large selection of fish inclduing the obvious cod, haddock and plaice, but also (according to the menu) sword fish, seabass, monk fish and shark (?!). Plus burgers, chicken and kebabs.
What makes this place special though is that they are the only chippy I found south of Scotland that does battered Mars bars! If you haven't tried them yet - do it! Admittedly the idea of deep-frying a Mars bar sounds weird but it really does work! Also on the menu are battered Cream Eggs and battered Snickers...
And they do orange chips on some days - apparently the Black Country is famous for this!
You can eat in or take away. The battered Mars bar!
