The SWKA League was established in 2007. It had been in existence in a previous incarnation as the Excalibur Korfball League (a combined league with Wales) since 1992. Each season, the SWKA’s membership has grown. There are now approximately 350 registered members of the SWKA.

The SWKA currently runs two leagues, as well as entering up to teams into the Western Regional League (a composite league comprising the top teams from each of the Oxford, Wales, and South West Associations respectively). SWKA have also run a social league this season for newer members to help become more familiar with the game as well as having fun competition.

As well as being responsible for running the Leagues, the SWKA also carries out a number of other activities to raise awareness and develop korfball in the South West. Each of these activities is driven by the relevant SWKA Committee Officer.
