August Summer Break!

As everyone continues their summer holidays, enjoying soaking up the sun and swimming in the lake, we’re having a summer break from Netball.

We’ll be back in September, kicking off Wednesday night training sessions again from the 4th of September. We’ll get back into weekly netball training sessions, monthly Zug matches, and preparation for the Amsterdam tournament in October.

Due to the recent heatwave, we’ve had to replace our last couple of Wednesday night training sessions with Swim & Gin sessions. For the rest of July, we expect to be back on the court, though due to summer holidays, low attendance may move us back to the lake! Keep an eye on your inbox for updates.

Summertime Netball in June!

The sun is out and we’re jumping for joy because Summer is here, meaning we can finally play outside!

Copenhagen Tournament in April

In April, 10 Zurich players visited Copenhagen, to join their Netball Tournament celebrating their 10 years as a club.

We spent Saturday on the netball courts playing against teams from all over Europe, including Stockholm, Amsterdam, Paris and Hamburg. It was a fantastic day, lots of fun, and a great netball experience for our girls. Though we only won a few games, the scorelines were always close. It was lovely to meet, greet and play against like-minded netball lovers from across the continent.

Saturday night we joined all the teams for a delicious meal and went on to celebrate further at a local cocktail bar, where each player was given an award for a personal feat they achieved during the competition.

On Sunday we explored the beautiful city of Copenhagen. We started with a lovely buffet breakfast (including chicken wings and maple sauce) and then enjoyed the sights by joining a free walking tour of the city. Much laughter was had by all!

There are many more tournaments planned for this year, including Berlin in June and Amsterdam in October. Want to join us? Please reach out to the Zurich Netball Committee at zurichnetball@gmail.com

 

Netball in March!

Last month we had lots of fun, including introducing blokes to netball, Sarah’s 5-mins of core workouts, and a fierce match against Zug. Here is Zurich and Zug in our post-match glory. Thanks for the great competition ladies!

Viel Schnee, Viel Netball!

Hope you’re enjoying the snow! If you’re wondering how to keep warm on your wintry Wednesday evenings, we’ve got you covered.  Here’s what ZNC has planned for February:

  • 6th Feb Training – Bring a Bloke night! A bit of fun to show the ‘blokes’ how we play the beautiful sport of Netball. We’ll then head into town for an after-training beer or two.
  • 13th Feb – School is closed, so no training this night. You’ll have to keep warm some other non-netball way.
  • 20th Feb Training – Regular netball training session, with lots of awesome netball.
  • 27th Feb Match – Reinstating the monthly matches against Zug. This game will be held in Zug. Who will win the first Zurich vs Zug match of 2019?
