Fasnacht-themed Training

With celebrations for Fasnacht fast approaching, it was time to kick off training in February with a Fasnacht-theme. All members were asked to come in their best carnival costumes, or something bright and colourful, to scare away winter. Because, let’s face it, we all want it to be summer so we can play on the outside courts!

It was a great turnout and everyone put in a great effort into their outfits. It isn’t every Wednesday that we can say we had a zebra, clown, frog, penguin and a hula girl turn up for training. It was tricky for some to train in their costumes but we still managed to get through some tough ball skills and a mini tournament.

Colourful for Carnival!

In 2020 we are re-introducing a monthly social after training. It seemed a shame to keep our excellent costumes a secret so we decided to share them with the clientele at the Outback pub. There’s nothing unusual about being dressed as a frog in the pub on a Wednesday, right?

It was also a cause for celebration for Kim, Lakshmi, Lorna and Lyndsay who had full attendance at training in January and were the winners of our Jump Into January competition. Well done Ladies!

The committee also had a meeting for the second time in 2020 on Thursday evening when items on the agenda included tournaments, coaching and where on earth the first aid kit has disappeared to?!?

The committee will next meet on March 5th. If you have any items that you would like to be discussed please let us know by email or just grab one of us at training. The agenda and minutes will be uploaded to Club Calendar when they are available.

If you would like to find out more about the committee, please click here.

Advance notice: there will be no training on 19th February due to school holidays.

Jump Into Jan!

The Christmas and New Year’s celebrations are long behind us and you’ve probably already had your first day back in work in 2020. Combine that with the facts that exercise routines during the festive season have gone out of the window and you might be weighing slightly more than you did 2 weeks ago and January can be a depressing month.

If only there was a way to banish the blues and get back into a healthy routine?

Well, there is! Come and Jump Into Jan with Zurich Netball Club. With skills training, core conditioning and match practices, there isn’t a better way to kick-start your health goals in 2020. As an added incentive, the best attendees in January will be treated to a drink down the local as a reward. Just come to the sessions on 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of January and a refreshing cool drink will be waiting for you.

Or perhaps this is the year that you promised yourself that you would try something new. Netball is a great sport to help improve your fitness, reaction times and is fantastic fun! Why don’t you come along for a taster of why 20 million people in 72 countries are mad about this sport?

As a club we are always looking for new players to come join us. It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced player or a complete novice. If you would like to be part of a social sporting society, feel free to email the committee at zurichnetball@gmail.com.

We hope to see you on the 8th so we can all Jump Into Jan together!thumbnail_image22
