Now in our eleventh year, Zurich Netball Club was found in Spring 2009 by a group of expats. Most of these ladies had not played since strict PE teachers made them play netball in the pouring rain at primary school.
From these humble beginnings, the club has gone from strength to strength. We have an ever-growing squad made up of total beginners to players who represent the Swiss National team. We are proud that our membership is made-up of people from all over the world: England, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Papa New Guinea, Netherlands and India to name but a few!
Our Wednesday night sessions normally consists of a warm-up to improve mobility and prevent injury, skills training to improve our ball skills as well as attacking and defending skills, match play and finally the dreaded cool-down/core stability training.
The main aim of the club is to keep fit and have fun doing it. Everyone is more than welcome to join. No experience is necessary. We will help you understand the rules and guide you through the basic. If you want to try a new sport, come along and find out for yourself why netball is one of the fastest growing sports in the world.
Events coming up in 2020 include:
- Themed training nights followed by drinks, including February Fasnacht, an Easter Egg-stravaganza and Beach night;
- Bring a Bloke and Newbie Night to encourage anyone who is new to the sport to come for a taster session;
- Friendly matches against other clubs;
- Participation in National and International Tournaments.
