And Just Like That…

Our trainings for 2021 are over!

2021 has been another challenging year but we finished the year off strongly!

In August, we had our long awaited House Warming Party which saw old and new faces coming together to play netball for the first time in a long time! Since then we have had enjoyed fantastic attendance and welcomed lots of new members to the Zurich Netball Club family!

In November, we focused on match play and defensive and offensive play and finished the month off with a full match! In a hotly contested game, the Pink Panthers just edged out the Smurfettes to win the game. We were also able to have an AGM in person this year in November, after having to have a virtual meeting last year. It was great to be back in The Outback Lodge in Stadelhofen after such a long absence. The new committee for 2022 was announced (details of which you can find here). We also say a big thank you to Lyndsay Lomax and Lorna Rettig, who are taking a well-deserved break from committee duties in 2022 but will still be around to keep our attacking circle strong!

The winners of the annual awards were also announced at the meeting. Congratulations to the following worthy winners in 2021:

Player of the Year – shared between Konio and Emily

Virtual Player of the Year – Abby

Best Newcomer – Pasqualina

Miss Motivator (for keeping us going with fitness sessions during Lockdown) – Lorna and Jess VR

We only had two training sessions in December but because of the fantastic attendance we were also able to get some full match play practice in, which will come in handy for when in January when Zurich Netball will be joining the Swiss Netball Monte Rosa league for the first time. We are already looking forward to more match play against other clubs in Switzerland!

We will be back early next year for more netballing fun. Follow us on Instagram @zurichnetballclub for weekly photos and videos of our training and matches!

In the meantime, thank you for supporting Zurich Netball Club! We wish you a very Merry Christmas wherever you are in the world and wish you a good and safe start into 2022!

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!
