tram 13 will take you from the Zurich HB to Paradeplatz, but it is in easy walking distance ( around 5 mins depending on the street lights/ Traffic)

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

I have a question, when you say "Football", which sport are you referring to?

Thanks

In case this is a legitimate question - association football, what you might call soccer.

Well, it doesn't look good at the moment, but in general a final call will be made on Sunday morning. If it's blazing hot, a lot of the moisture can get fried away. Forecast is for rain, though.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

A place with astroturf or somewhere indoor would be perfect. If you find one central enough to be useful, let us know!

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Okay, tricky one. The radar suggests it won't rain more before 2pm. But based on the 'view of road outside my flat' test, it's probably a bit too wet to play safely.

Any thoughts?

Reporting from Kreis 4: a bit moist in the cracks, but the ground is essentially dry.

Dibs on first cancellation-replacement - if anyone (or their guest/s) can't make it, let it be known!

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Hmm... have you ever played on our pitch? It tends to stay damp unless it's really sunny.

You can take my place if we do play. I was just about to call it off for this week.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Ta for the offer, no worries though - I'm happy to come along if someone pulls out but plenty to do otherwise.

I've played on the pitch before but haven't seen it wet. I'm nipping out to get some Sunday morning sustenance just now, it's 5 minutes off my route to stop by the pitch so I'll take a look.
