From Melbourne to Zurich :)

Hey everyone,

I have just (3 weeks past) moved here from Melbourne, Australia, to complete a Master of Science degree at UZH.
I don't have many classes this semester so I'm dying to find sports (basketball, fencing, whatever) and activities to pass the time.

I look forward to hanging around!

-Georgia

Welcome to Zurich, Georgia!

Good luck with your search. Fencing may be tricky but I'm sure you can find a basketball game somewhere. If you consider pool a sport (!) then let me know - there are a few people who play when it gets to this time of year and the weather turns rotten...

Cheers

Mark

Hi Georgia, welcome to Zurich and the EF!

If you want to try something a bit different, why not try underwater hockey or underwater rugby? Each Tuesday and Thursday night, from 20:00 to about 22:00, we train together at Hallenbad Oerlikon for an hour and then split to have games ...

I am absolutely no good at Pool but Underwater hockey looks like a lot of fun! (I'd never heard of it before now)

I might drop by next Tuesday and have a look

The underwater stuff does look awesome, but I suspect I would drown...

You don't have to be a brilliant swimmer to play, just be comfortable on the bottom of the pool ...

As OP posted the last time in 2014, chances are high she left the country or is no longer interested being on this forum
