Fun, friendly football fun close to Paradeplatz.

* New players and women are very welcome (unless we've reached the player limit)
* All skill levels are represented, ranging from comically inept to Spanish
* It's free
* A lovely, refreshing fountain is nearby. Bring a plastic bottle.
* If the pitch is slippy or if it's raining the event is cancelled (because it's really dangerous)

Please show up on Sunday or update your status well in advance.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Does anyone know of a gym or swimming pool close to the field to take a shower?

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

What i do after the game (and sometimes during the breaks) is go to the nearby fountain and give myself a cowboy bath (just grab a bunch of watter and poured in the head .. on summer the shirt was also included) .. just to get most of the sweat of and refresh a little bit.

That could be sloopy plan c
xD

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

there is the luxor sports club near stockerstrasse

or you can try your luck at the ETH polyterrasse, the guard is often not at his seat or should let you in for a shower

or a sauna at seebad enge (i think entrance is 30CHF )

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Fair amount of rain last night here, and it's wet on the ground. But then again here is not just off Paradeplatz. Hopefully "next week".

Similar to last week, the conditions, i'd say. We had a good game then.

Can I not just give you that little push to come c123. We could really use the extra player. Come on, you know you want to play.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

A big sorry to everyone that turned up to play yesterday. We had no idea that the Zurcher Silvesterlaufen would use our field for changing rooms. Let's hope that the weather stays warm and dry so we can have a game next Sunday.

Cheers for everyone actually showing up and my apologies.

Re: Zurich Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football

Fingers crossed for either some decent snow in Züri (missed it at Xmas) or very dry weather in January...
