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!
Save these dates! Zurich Netball has some great events in 2017 for your diary:
- Netball weekend in Spain
- Together with Netball Zug, we are planning to head to Spain for a weekend of netball from 20-23 October. Netball and sun and fun – what could be better? For more details, or to register your interest, email the club today.
- Peppermill Tournament
- As the most consistently winning-y club in the country, let’s go for another strong performance this year! Put Sunday 26 November in your diary and save the date. Location is Geneva area again. More details to follow.
Hope you’re looking forward to these as much as we are!
The Zurich Netball Committee hopes you have had a lovely Easter break and enjoyed many delicious Swiss Easter Eggs! We are returning on Wednesday 26th of April. As we all know, Netball is a great way to work off those Easter Egg calories. The training will be followed by a social at the Outback.

As per the photos below, much fun was had at last week’s Newbie Night. We had many players returning from years of netball absence, as well as one new player who had never even held a netball!
To follow up, this week we will host a match against our dear rivals, Netball Zug. The match is open to everyone, including newbies. To join in the match play, sign up here: http://doodle.com/poll/8iandzg87p2tct9a
Coach Phil telling us what’s what of Netball
Everyone getting in the perfect position to catch the ball.
Always a good idea to practice catching, throwing, timing, spacing, footwork…
Hungry for the ball!
Where would we be without our umpire/coach Phil?
As we look forward to spring at Zurich Netball, we would like to encourage new folk to the club. We will therefore be hosting a Netball Beginners and Newbies night next Wednesday 29th March at the usual time of 7 – 8.30pm at ICS Zumikon.
The session will include back-to-basics skills and is open to everyone, whether a returning netball player, new to the game or trying to get back into fitness. Existing members are of course encouraged to come along too, to share their love of netball.
We will follow the training with drinks somewhere around Stadelhofen, venue tbc.
Please sign up on the doodle, and feel free to pass it along to any colleagues or friends who would be interested too – just remember to sign up so the coaches know who to expect.
Any questions, please let us know!
This Sunday is the Peppermill Challenge Tournament, the Annual Swiss Netball Open Championship competition where Netball Clubs from across Switzerland will be competing for the coveted Peppermill Trophy.
