First training of the new decade

On Wednesday Zurich Netball Club were back to training for the first time in 2020. We had a fantastic turnout for the first session back. It would be great to think that everyone was super keen because they had playing netball over the festive period but some (myself included) were glad to be doing something active after indulging too much over Christmas!

After warming up we focused on ball skills in pairs to get us used to catching and throwing again. The drills were a combination of lobs and chest passes as well as mini-competitions to see which pair were the fastest without dropping the ball.

Then we split into two teams for match practice. We mixed it up a bit by selecting a bib at random so lots of us were playing positions that were new to us. This meant we had to use our brains and we learnt something about other positions on the court.

To finish we managed the dreaded cool down/core training which was difficult after such a long absence. Hopefully this part of training will get easier in the coming weeks.

It was so nice to see everyone after the winter break and some new faces to the club came to training as well. New members are always welcome to join. If you would like to come along and try netball for the first time or even get back into a sport that you used play, please get in touch with the committee at zurichnetball@gmail.com or send us a message on Facebook.

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
