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!
