March Madness

Can anyone believe that it’s already March? We are glad it’s here because March is going to be a super exciting month for everyone at Zurich Netball Club. There is so much planned for this month that you will have to forgive us for getting giddy with excitement.

We kicked off March at our first training session working on dynamic movements off the ball to help create space and options for passing followed by some intense competitive match play.

All fully-paid up members at the session also received a super cute ZNC badges at training. Only available to current members and returning members at training, make sure you come to training and pay your subs to get your hands on one. Not available in the shops!

IMG_9214Next week on 11th March we will be hosting a Bring A Bloke night. As the participation of men in netball is at an all time high, we are doing our bit to encourage the men of Zurich to get involved as well. Members are invited to bring the man in their life or a friend or colleague so they can discover for themselves why we are so crazy about netball. Absolutely no experience is necessary as full training and rule explanations will be given!

For the rest of the month we will being continuing our preparation for the Peppermill tournament which is organised by Swiss Netball and will take place in Geneva. We now have a confirmed squad for the tournament but members are still able to join via the Doodle to join the waiting list in case of injuries to members of the current squad.

Swiss Netball have confirmed they will not cancel the tournament because of coronavirus unless told to by the cantonal authorities in Geneva. We are keeping everything crossed that the tournament goes ahead. 2020 is the first time we have entered the tournament and we are keen to take part in it again.

Watch out later in the month for the long-awaited return of the Player Profiles. How well do you know your teammates? Find out more on the Player Profile section of the website later this month.

See you all at training next week!

Photos from Lausanne Friendly Tournament 16th November

Although you might not believe it from the sunshine, this was November in Lausanne! Another reason to love netball in Switzerland! Here are a few shots from the great day, Zurich Netball often in red on this day due to the sea of blue bibs from other teams!

Even if the defence was tough, Zurich held their ground!

 

More tough defence, but solid concentration from Zurich

Those boys are so tall!
