What a year!

What a year 2020 has been! We haven’t been able to play half as much netball as we wanted to and have had to resort to seeing each other on weekly Zoom fitness sessions but we are happy that all our members have stayed healthy and happy throughout the year.

In the middle of December we held our AGM (online, of course!) followed by a Christmas Quiz. This was very different to previous years when were have been able to enjoy a Christmas party in person and enjoy celebrating the end of the year together.

We did keep to our AGM tradition of handing out awards to members who have shown outstanding commitment over the year. This year’s Award Winners were as follows:

Best Attendance – Jointly won by Lorna Rettig and Claudia Almer

Best Newcomer – Emily Bridgman

Quarantine Quizzer – Steffi Zinsser

Most Festive (for best fancy dress at the AGM) – Lyndsay Lomax

The Committee for 2021 was also announced:

President/Coach – Claudia Almer

Treasurer – Jess Brown

Secretary – Abby Clark / Emma Wickens

Event Co-ordinators – Lorna Rettig / Sarah Hannibal

Social Media – Lyndsay Lomax

Coach – Jess Van Rossum

Think Tank – Kim Weber

… And a huge thanks to Emma Schwarzwälder who did a fantastic job as part of the committee in 2020. Emma will be taking a break for netball as she recently became a mum to gorgeous baby Sophie!

Thank you to all our members for continuing to support us through a difficult year. However, it wasn’t all disappointing news as we have now found a permanent new home which we are excited to use once it is safe to do so.

Our Online Zoom fitness sessions will be restarting on 5th January 2021 at 8pm and members will receive the link to the Doodle to sign up over the next few days. Hope to see you there!

All the best for 2021 and we hope (really, really hope) to see you all on a netball court soon!

AGM and Christmas Party

This week the AGM and Christmas Party for all the members of Zurich Netball Club was held. That means it is almost Christmas (yay!) but there is no more netball this decade (boo!).

It was a great turnout with 20 members of the club coming together to celebrate a great year which included success at two international tournaments, matches against our local rvials in Zug and watching the Netball World Cup in the pub.

The committee revealed their goals for the club for next year which included a strategy to encourage more regular attendance at training and a plan to increase the amount of netball that is played. All members of the club are welcome to share their ideas and thoughts and, if anyone is keen to volunteer to help us reach our goals in 2020, please let a member of the committee know. Teamwork makes the dream work!

The night was rounded off with an awards presentation that was voted for by members. The winners were:

Player of the Year: Joint winners were Claudia and Lorna

Most Improved Player: Kim

Most Consistent Player: Emma S

Best Newcomer: Kiara

Biggest Personality/Biggest Mouth: Jess B

Our amazing coach and President, Claudia said, “I am proud to be president of this wonderful club because of you all, and I look forward to more netball with each and everyone of you next year.”

2019 was a great year but let’s make 2020 even better!
