Any basketball going on in Zurich?

Anyone know of any casual or organized pick-up games happening around the city?

Re: Any basketball going on in Zurich?

there is a league that has several teams in and around Zürich, much of this will be in German but here is the link (I believe):

http://probasket.ch/vereine

I think the club season will be drawing to a close soon, but many of the clubs have training teams (basically pick-up basketball) and/or organized pick-up during the offseason. hope this helps.

Why don't we all hook up one of these weekends and go hoop it up.

Re: Any basketball going on in Zurich?

Ok guys, let's try to get this rolling. So far, we have:

Me
lost-inbroad
niknak
kurterik
AC33
crazygringo

That's good enough for a pick-up game. Does anyone know of any basketball courts around the city?

Furthermore, is anyone interested in creating a group? Perhaps on Facebook?

Re: Any basketball going on in Zurich?

OK, well I literally have no idea where any of them are, so could you maybe list a few? I think we should start on an outdoor (free) court, so we can all meet up and agree to pay for a rental, rather than organizing and paying for an indoor gym straight off the bat and having no-shows.

Re: Any basketball going on in Zurich?

I'm in as well. Is Zollikon too far out for everyone? There's a school with some outdoor basketball courts near the local community centre. In saying that, I better check the height of the rings are 10ft.

Also happy to rent a gym

Re: Any basketball going on in Zurich?

if people are willing to meet up in the city, I can chase down where the courts are (they are generally everywhere). Rösli is supposed to have the nicest court in the city and pick-up games going on most weekends, too.
