Re: Chneble (ice hockey) schedule around Zürich

Dolder report: ice was beautiful on Friday night, but a hot, bumpy mess on Saturday lunchtime. Apparently because it is still so warm, it is not possible to resurface until 4pm. So get there early or late!

Ursdorf on Sunday: "traditional" size covered rink. Beautiful ice, split half for hockey and half for open skating (which consisted of a lot of the local skating school).

Kloten report coming after Wednesday evening, no doubt, then Rapperswil on Saturday and Diesldorf on Sunday

Regarding Urdorf, is hockey always ongoing there? I see on the opening times they list "Freies Hockey", but I don't understand that in the current context, is that the only day they have chneble? They also write "kein freies hockey" on Saturdays... so what about all the other days??

Half the rink was for hockey on a non-designated session, so I can only assume that the "freies hockey" refers to when the whole rink is for hockey? Sorry, I didn't ask

Beautiful ice though. Could even do figures with my year-blunt blades

How are the people in Urdorf? The general consensus from the Heuried regulars was that the players were a bit jerks, and unfriendly-and they didn't have proper goals to play with (had to use someone's boots)?

They generally said it wasn't too pleasant last season.

I'm a figure skater. All hockey players are jerks

(I have no idea I'm afraid... I didn't so much as cast a glance over the forbidden side of the rink.)

I never made it to Dielsdorf or Kloten (horribly sick and work, respectively) but Rapperswil today was stunning. Two pads, one inside and one outside. Outside is only open from November so this review is of the Eishalle.

They do an ice cut every hour and it's the waxy stuff figure skaters' dreams are made of. Bonus: free for the entire Herbstferein.

Standard set up, half for hockey with soft pucks, half for open skating. Lots of small kids but manageable (actually managing to practise rather than bail or skate around for space 50% of the time counts as pretty decent).

Definitely my favourite rink so far and second bonus, the one closest

Third bonus: one passes the zoo on the way there. I wasn't expecting to see a giraffe glare at me en route.

Soft pucks? Never seen them used in CH. A bit more common in Canada when playing with schools or other liability risks.

Deal breaker for me! Real puck or nothing!

I hit up Dolder on Thursday evening, ice was good, crowd was good. I think that will be my chneble go-to location for the season when not playing organized.

The rink is split - they don't want any flying into a kid without padding on the other side of the rink.

Let me know when you're next in Dolder! Rapperswil isn't open in the evenings on weekdays and I miss skating near daily (even if I last did years ago).

define "soft" puck.. im used to getting hit with the galvanized stuff although i usually have shin pads when that happens but every once in a while it hits you in the sweet spot where it leaves a nice blue and black mark for a few weeks....

I'm in basel and Margarethen park does not open until Mid November... Eglisee is open on October 31st but for someone thats used to playing year round that is blasphemy to me...

let me know who is going where in the next 2-3 weeks.. i work in Zurich so i wont think twice about shoving my skates into my backpack with my laptop and coming out after work to get some game time in... need to scratch that itch

In Zurich, I've always played with a vulcanized puck (I'm guessing galvanized was a misnomer--or a really cool puck!). I also play with shin guards. That being said I do have a 4 stitch scar on my forehead from a deflected puck at Dolder a few years back. A few people do wear the bucket as well. And a cup, I don't play without a cup.

I will definitely be up at dolder this weekend, either Friday night or sat. Maybe even Thursday. I'll update here later.

Re: Chneble (ice hockey) schedule around Zürich

Chemmie is spot on about this year and sadly next year too and possibly for many years if the full plans go ahead.

Dolder is THE ONLY place in Zurich for ice skating and chneble until Herbst 2017. I have also heard it mentioned that Oerlikon will then be closed for re-development after that. IF so, it may be MANY years before Zurich is back to three locations to play chneble - definitely a bummer!

Here is the Dolder chneble schedule

http://www.doldersports.com/fileUplo...ber%202015.pdf

Some times it can be AWESOME fun - some times not - all depends on who shows up.....

The Heuried closure is definitely a drag.... I played there every Thursday night from October to March.... and I will really miss those evenings now.

There are also more serious hockey options if you want to don full pads.

ENJOY!

Chneble is pretty big here. Usually the place to go is Heuried, however it is closed this season for rink improvements.

Options include Dolder, Oerlikon and Urdorf in the area.

I have gone a few times to Dolder, but there was usually no set time, so it was random if you could find a pickup game.

Never been to Urdorf, but there was a general consensus that the regulars there are a bit of jerks, and there are no nets so goals are made with shoes.

Speaking with the other regulars, it seemed to be agreed that we would play at Oerlikon, but now looking at the website, I see that they have no chneble--the ice is reserved for club play since Heuried is closed.

I guess Dolder is the only option in Zurich.

Wetzikon has chneble all year round as well.

I was thinking of heading to Dolder Sunday morning/afternoon if anyone else wants to join. They seem to have very random chneble hours on Sunday though..
