The Summer Leopard’s League came to an end a couple of weeks ago, and we took the opportunity to celebrate in true Zurich Summer style at the Frauenbadi. The leopard league was over a six week period and we had two great competitive teams the ‘Alligators’ and the ‘Crocodiles’. Due to the lack of Summer weather we only got to play four of the six matches, but each match was tight with only a few goals to spare.
Happy Birthday Zurich Netball Club!
To celebrate the club being a grand old age of 5, we all got together for a BBQ by the Lake! The sun was out, the water was warmish, and the company was great! We had some girls brave the waters of Lake Zurich, and other battled it out at Badminton. It was a great chance for everyone to catch up with old and new faces.
On May 17th, a group of dedicated netballers (and a few of their friends and partners) joined 908 teams for the annual Zurich Sola Lauf. It was the third time the club took part in the Sola Lauf, and we are proud to say tht we completed the 116.6 km relay race in 11 hours, 32 minutes and 47 seconds!! With an overall ranking of 843rd.
Eight of our members and five of their friends got together to run the 116.6km, with running legs ranging from 4.2 km to 14.1km. A big well done to our club members, Barbara (who had to start at 7.30am and also for beating her time of last year), Katherine (who tackled the ups and downs of the Üetliberg), Juliet (who battled the midday heat), Sophie, Doris, Lorna, Vicky and Farzana, as well as their brave friends, Garry, Alex, Lothar, Matt, Peter and Jo.
A great achievement by all our runners. We are proud of you!!!! Thanks for doing such a great job at representing our club!

Zurich players enjoyed an active Saturday morning of netball at a recent friendly tournament hosted by Zug Netball, with 4 teams in attendance and a full size court to test our fitness levels.
The final of Zurich 1 vs Zug Seniors was a close run game with Zug emerging as the eventual winners. Thanks to all the Zurich players who made it, it was great to see so many people there, to Phil for being our travelling umpire par excellence and the Zug committee for inviting us to their lovely Oberargeri venue – we hope we’ll be back soon!
Tournament: Sat 24th May 9am – 1pm. Order of play TBC.
How to get there: The venue is Dreifachhalle / Music School Hofmatt, Hofmatt 2, Hofmattstrasse Oberägeri. If you are getting public transport, you need to get to the Zug Bahnhof.
