Activities in Lausanne

Hi Guys,

First of all i would say its good to be back on this forum.

I was living in Basel about 2 years back and then suhutting various places and finally ended up in Lausanne now.

I wanted to know activities which one can do in Lausanne. I want to play badminton or tennis ( not played much). any idea about these sports in lausanne ?

How can i get to the courts ? What are the rates and timings ? how is the occupancy ??

Cheers!!
Dennis

Then, welcome back! Don't forget to change the location in your public profile to Lausanne before hitting the sack!

Re: Activities in Lausanne

there's an indoor badminton place in malley, it's pretty nice. i play once a week (not during vacations, though) with a group from the chuv and epfl in ours on wednesdays, but there are others around if you do a search. tennis is a bit pricey as there are no public courts (that i have found) but there are outdoor courts near montchoisi and the olympic stadium. also, check out what is happening on glocals, that's where you will find events for the geneva/lausanne area and there are plenty of things going on...welcome back (and to lausanne!)

Re: Activities in Lausanne

Montchoisi Tennis Club is a cool place for tennis. Next to the piscine Montchoisi, Olympic Museum. Nice resto and less hoidy toidy atmosphere than Vidy Tennis Club (but they have inflatable indoor courts for winter). Just my 2c's.

Re: Activities in Lausanne

To get a court at the Vidy courts without a reservation, I suggest calling to check with them (French only) to check on availability mid to late afternoon on Saturdays or Sundays. If there is availability, you can usually get on later in the day with only waiting a short time. The courts cost CHF 17 per person for one hour.
