The 2019 version of the Summer Classic proved to be the best yet for Sydney, with many highlights and an incredible run to the final. From the very first whistle, Sydney raced into a 4-0 half time lead against NSW rivals Newcastle, holding on for a solid 7-2 win in the opening match. It was a very impressive performance in the Redbacks first match of the year, and also being Matt’s debut.
Rain delays pushed the club’s Christmas party out into 2019 which turned out all for the better as the sun was shining and the water was perfect.
The Redbacks tackled (literally) a new sport – SUPball (Stand Up Paddle Ball) at Manly in Sydney and can safely say that we’ve caught the bug for this emerging sport! Described as a combination of netball, water polo, lacrosse and rugby(!) we certainly did plenty of throwing, paddling, falling and tackling.
We’ll certainly be back for another game before the end of summer!
Check out SUPBall here.
Sun’s out, guns out… or in this case… wind’s out, post Christmas bellies out… A blustery day hit Nobbys beach in korfball but this didn’t stop 16 Sydney korfers from travelling up north to play in the first ever NSW beach korf tourno.
A mix of Redbacks and Royals, combined with some superstar actionball newbies hit the sand and had a fantastic day of beach korfball.
Massive congrats go to Sam Turtle and Marleen Jellema as the official ‘players of the day’.

1008 sausages on a 30deg day made for a very successful fundraiser to kickstart the club financially for next year.

The first game of the NSW 2018 korfball series got underway with a high quality, high scoring game. Newcastle took the lead early before Joey shot from close range to get the Redbacks first goal of the season. Sydney then created multiple chances but showed signs of early season rustiness as Newcastle took a 4-1 lead. As the half-time whistle neared, Gemma found space and sunk a mid-range shot to make it 4-2 at half-time. Continue reading “Sydney Redbacks vs Newcastle Royals – Game 1 – 2018!”
On Sunday the Redbacks donned their favourite BBQ attire and utensils and took to the hot grill of Bunnings Mascot to serve hot snags and cold drinks to the hungry and thirsty public!
