Heather Bowden

Sadly, we have to report the following message from Bec:

“It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of one of our BecBees Heather Bowden, along with her mum Emma Bowden, Emma’s fiancé Richard Cousins and his two sons Will & Edward Cousins who passed away after a seaplane crash on New Year’s Eve in Sydney, Australia. Heather was 11 years old and joined our club just over a year ago.

Davesh Patel, Bec junior officer, commented: “Heather’s eagerness to just get involved and have fun was ever present. Never without a smile on her face, she will be dearly missed and our thoughts and condolences go out to her family and friends.

Everyone at the club shares Dav’s sentiments and our thoughts go out to all those affected by this terribly sad news.”

Everyone at the LKA would like to express our sympathies to everyone who knows Heather and her family and to all at Bec.

EKA consultation on membership structure

The England Korfball Association have produced a consultation paper on their membership structure. In particular, this discusses the option of moving to a system where individuals are members of the EKA, not clubs or areas. This would affect how membership fees are calculated. They have requested responses by 2nd May.

For more details, please see here.

EKA EGM – 6 September

The England Korfball Association EGM will be held on Sunday 6th September between 1pm to 1.30pm at Whitgift School, Croydon CR2 6YT . This will be during the EKA’s Club Day.

The EGM is being held because the recent AGM was not quorate. The LKA would encourage representatives of all clubs to attend this EGM to increase the likelihood of it being quorate. The purpose of the meeting is to carry out the voting that could not be completed at the AGM.

Elsie Renew trophy awarded to Sally and Lol More

The LKA committee has decided to award the Elsie Renew trophy for services to London korfball to Sally and Lol More jointly. Sally and Lol were presented with the award during the England Korfball League play-offs.

Well done to Sally and Lol!


Supernova requires non-squad coach

Supernova are looking for a new coach for their 3rd and 4th teams, which play in London Leagues 2 and 3. This would be the perfect position for someone who is looking to gain experience in coaching.

They are looking for an enthusiastic person, who could do the following:

– Provide training that is both fun and helps develop players

– Choose teams for league games

– Work with the squad coach and the club training team to ensure a consistent coaching experience

– If possible, also run some training sessions for Club training (Weds 7 – 9 in a venue near Waterloo)

It would be helpful if you have some experience playing London Regional League level, but this is not a pre-requisite.
Non-squad training will be on Tuesdays from 6.30 to 8pm, in the Millwall Community Centre (zone 2, a 2 minute train ride from London Bridge). Remuneration will depend on experience and is negotiable.

Please contact Eiti Laure Stein at or 07565 254514 if you’re interested.
