Tennis Summer 2008, First Meetup
Calendar: Social Events
 
12.04.2008 16:00 to 17:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Schlieren
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: VITIS SportCenter

Dear all,

As we have 4 for all weekend and 3 for Saturday afternoon, maybe the best is that we met on Saturday around 4, so we could have 1 or 2 hours and be free by 6.

However, the weather forecast doesn't look bright.

Samstag

/11°

So we have two options.

1. Cancel and organize the meetup for next Saturday.
2. Meet anyway on an indoor court.

So I called the tennis club in Schlieren and reserved 2 side-by-side courts for Saturday 12th at 4pm.

However their price is still winter price until the 27th April. The courts are carpet courts and the price is CHF 50 per court, So it would come down to CHF 15 each of us or less if some more people would come.

We could also do 2 hours in one court if you prefer that, or maybe we do our meetup from 4 to 5 and if you still want to play we can get another hour.

Please confirm here if you will come or not, I can still cancel the reservation until friday 11th at 3pm.

The location is

VITIS SportCenter,
Wiesenstrasse 8,
8952 Schlieren/ZH-West

It is just in front of the train station Schlieren. Location here

In case the weather forecast is wrong and we end having good weather for Saturday we'll change the meeting to the outdoor court
RSVP'd Yes: 5 (5 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 2
  • Uncle Max - New Balls, please
  • PlantHead - But I will play later in the Summer, so will watch the thread
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Only three had signed in so far.

ChrisNor conformed by PM so we would be 4.

Please post your intentions to come at latest by tomorrow noon otherwise I'd have to cancel 1 or maybe even the 2 courts.

Re: Tennis Summer 2008, First Meetup

Well as we would be probably 5 i'll reserve 1 court

please be there before 4pm

15:45 is a good time, so we can meet and greet and then take the court at 4pm.

If there is more people than expected. We can allways get another court or maybe a second hour.

See you all there !

Hi Everyone,

My girlfriend and I are staying not far away from Schlieren so you can count us in on Saturday at 16h00. We are aware that there might not be another court for all of us available but we just will come to socialize with you giving priority to those who have already anounced they arrival earlier.

Re: Tennis Summer 2008, First Meetup

hello jacek, just come and ready to play.

i think there would not be a problem to reserve another court if there are more participants.

I'll try to get two adjacent courts if the number is 8, we can play confortably on 2 courts and maybe stay another hour if there are players who want it.

Hello everyone,
Sorry for not replying earlier! I will do my best to join you also tomorrow, but I am not sure I will make it, as I'm moving to a new home later this month,and have to organize the final move over this weekend
In any case, enjoy the games, and I really hope I'll be done on time to join you too!!

Re: Tennis Summer 2008, First Meetup

mmm. looks like we'll have a sunny day today anyway.

The forecast still says rain for moments and maybe clear at the afternoon.

Maybe if possible we coud head to the Mythenquai after. Let's see.

Re: Tennis Summer 2008, First Meetup

Dear All,

assuming then that 10 of you will come, we have reserved the 2 courts today at 4pm in Schlieren as it was planned.

Please be there a little earlier 15:45 is the good time to meet.

We have 1 hour in Schlieren, after that can then decide what to do, if to stay longer there or head to the Mythenquai.

Today is sunny but still cold, so maybe we could start with the Mythenquai from then next week and there will be allways the possibility to go to Schlieren in case of rain for future dates.

See you all there.

Oh, no! Too bad, we thought it was really neat that you were coming so far.

I'd like to thank everyone for putting up with me being the weakest link out there. Yikes!

How did the 18.00 session go btw?

Hi Guys,

My girlfriend and I had a great time getting together with you guys. It was cool to meet and play a little bit then have a chat... We should do it more often from social point of view Many thanks to all of you who made this evening happen!

Re: Tennis Summer 2008, First Meetup

Thanks Jacek,

I had a great time with you all today.

It would be great to count with you and many other to come so we will be having this kind of meetings weekly.

According to the weather forecast next weekend could be sunny and warmer.

I'll reserve then courts at the Mythenquai but if the weather gets bad during the week we'll still have a second Tennis event in Schlieren.
