Copenhagen Tournament in April

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

20190413-083324-WhatsApp-1024x875

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!

March promises to be as exciting as February. On the 7th, we’ll follow training with some beers and nibbles at the pub. On the 27th, we’ll play host to the next monthly Zug vs Zurich match. And, of course, for those coming to the Copenhagen tournament, we’ll have lots of training to prepare us for next month’s competition!

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?

We’ll Miss You Phil!

After being Head Coach of Zurich Netball for many many years, our beloved Phil is leaving us for the beautiful landscapes of Italy.

Phil has been an integral part of the club and we were so lucky to have her. Not only for her netball and umpiring wisdom, but for her encouragement and motivation for each of us to become better netballers.

Thank you for everything Phil, we wish you all the best.

Netball Training – Attack and Defence

As the Peppermill is only a month away, last night’s training at Zurich Netball Club was all about Attack and Defence, focusing on perfecting our Throw-Ins.

A great effort in the training drills was seen from everyone, followed by some fantastic match play. We are definitely ready to bring home that trophy. And look how colour-coordinated we were!
