Anybody interested in playing Squash?

First, it doesn't really fit at this place. However, it seemed to me to be the best spot. Maybe Mr. ADMIN should open a new group "sport" or "common interests"

I'm from Zürich and looking for anybody who likes to play Squash. The best/nearest place I know is "Vitis" in Schlieren (3 stops from Zürich HB by S-bahn). Playing once a week or maybe every two weeks.....

... If many people are interested, we could also agree on a fixed day/time and have a after-squash drink (drinking seems to be the common basis in this forum )

Looking forward to you postings.

No, Mr. ADMIN will move it from "non-commercial events" to the area described as "If it doesn't fit in any other area, then maybe it will fit here..." (i.e. General). Your post isn't an event - yet

Richard is a bit a squash expert - maybe you'll get his attention and he'll come in with some advice.

The Airgate gym in Oerlikon (just near Bahnhof Oerlikon) also has 3 or 4 squash courts. I don't play myself and therefore don't know if the full gym membership is necessary in order to use the courts or if they're open to non-members too. But i've seen from the pictures, notices, etc on the walls that they also have some kind of league or competitions going. I'll check it out next time i'm there, if it would be of interest.

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

Squash in Switzerland is quite well organised which might have something to do with the president of Swiss Squash being English - Essex boy actually...

Around Zürich there are several clubs including Airgate and Vitis.
Airgate has no real interest in squash they simply inherited the courts and are therefore quite expensive.
Vitis is a specialist racket centre with several courts including a two wall glass court. They also have some dodgy flooring so watch out which courts you get if you like your knees.

Other clubs include Grasshoppers. They are out Zollikon way near Hirslanden stuck off the beaten track a bit and you will need a car or be fit to get there. They have a great English pro Mark Woodliffe and an English atmosphere.
And Swissair in Bassersdorf which is fine but a bit run down and a bit cliquey.
There is also one near Bülach but I was never there so no comment.

And then slightly further afield:
Frick great place this best courts in Switzerland and very friendly with a website of their own - www.squashfricktal.ch - this is a pay for the year and use it as much as you want, when you want place
Langnau which is a la Vitis just a bit(lot) friendlier.
Wintherthur which is also quite friendly but dark and imposing -courts are fine though.

Any questions please ask and if you are any good lets organize a game - in Frick of course cost on me. If anyone wants to organize a (semi-)regular Sunday morning game let me know. I can provide the courts etc at a very good rate.

Mark am I being too commercial here!

, no it's very relevant to the post, but you should put something in brackets if you invite people to go to a site that you run/are involved with, just so they are aware you are recommending your own stuff.

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

Hi Mike, I'm flying to Chicago on Friday and coming back mid of next week. How about sometime on the weekend of Sept 2nd/3rd?

So far, I think we could watch this Sqush growing to an event in a couple of weeks. Weather could help

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

I played squash for a few years here . Now I have a bust knee to show for it.

Ho hum.

Anyway.

Airgate has quite a few courts, you don't need special membership.

my favourite place to play is a place in Dietlikon called SquashFit. Difficult to get to without a car - but nice courts, nice atmosphere, nice staff and they recently did the place up too.

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

I would love to join in. I am new to the game - so if you guys are really good, i can sit on the bench. I dont have a car so i'd prefer a place where the tram or bus works.

please let me know if there is a time already picked

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

I'm fairly new here, an intermediate-low level player, would love to find a partner for weekly games. I'm in Zurich (work and live very close to Zurich Enge banhof).

PM me if you're interested...

The "Squash Romandie" website lists the clubs down in that part of Switzerland...

Help on racquetball

I know the thread is about squash, but I just spent 20 minutes trying to find a place around ZH for racquetball. Can anyone point to one or it is just not a popular sport in CH (my conclusion)

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

This thread is an older one, but figured i would attach to it.....

Looking to lose a few pounds in the new year or perhaps get your squash swing back in form??

anyhow, I am looking for a squash partner or two in the zurich area to start in the New Year (2009). I play at an intermediate standard and am in reasonable shape. I am reasonably flexible in terms of location and need to be - since there are not an overabundance of courts available in the greater zurich area. However, i live in Thalwil and there are a few courts near me.

PM me if you are interested!!

alex

Re: Anybody interested in playing Squash?

Alex, I would be interested in a knock especially in view of Christmas excesses. Was a regular player a few years ago, level now? In Zurich area normally wonder down to Schlerien VITIS. Could play tomorrow? or Sunday.
