Congratulations to Lorna and Mollie who have made it onto the Swiss squad travelling to Gibraltar to take on Wales, Gibraltar, Malta and more in the IFNA World Ranking tournament in June! Jo made it onto the reserves and will train with the squad. Well done also to Farzarna for trialling! The new senior Swiss team will be coached by Jennifer Fields (UK Superleague Netballer) and Victoria Knights (Swiss U17 coach), and will be captained by Andrea McKellar.
Visit the new Zurich Netball League page on our website to view information about Switzerland’s first netball league; including match schedules, team lists (to come before Christmas), results of each match and other general information about the league.

We are excited to announce that Zurich Netball is launching from January Switzerland’s first ever netball league! We’ll be running league matches twice a month, with normal training sessions in the weeks inbetween. Contact us today if you would like to be a part of this exciting development to netball in Switzerland. The league is open to men and women, and will be mixed ability teams. If you’re interested in joining us, improving your fitness, honing your match skills and having a bit of fun competition, then please get in touch! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! Watch this space for updates too!
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

2011 is off to a fine start, with our first training session since the new year. Here’s the lowdown of what is going on over the next few weeks:
12th January: First training session of the year
19th January: Regular training session
20th January: First social evening at the Viadukt market hall, near to Hardbrücke, from 7pm
26th January: AGM and game- please take the opportunity to attend and have a say in what direction the club takes this year
Note that we’re starting our monthly socials from January onwards; the third Thursday of the month at Viadukt, Hardbrucke.
Please add your attendance to the doodles for Jan and Feb:
Check your inboxes very soon to find out details of the agenda for the AGM on Wednesday 26th Jan. It’ll take place at the school, but it’s your chance to get more involved in Zurich Netball, whether you have an hour a day or an hour a year to help out! We’ll go straight into a game after the AGM, so come ready to play some netball!
If you would like to let us know you’re interested in a more active role in the club, then drop us an email at email@example.com
Another month has passed and now we kindly ask you to sign up to October’s exciting events! This month it’s not just the weekly training sessions, but also a few extra sessions. Details of those to follow; otherwise you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, or give Jo C a call.
Please also make sure you sign up for the Bring a Friend night on 3rd November, and please indicate how many people you will be bringing so that we can plan well in advance for that too!
We now have guys coming along to practice too, so do encourage more to come along. There won’t be any hair pulling, so they needn’t worry about it being a girly sport. We can definitely show them otherwise!
Looking forward to seeing you all in October for another great netballing month!
