Re: Netball!

In Bern.
But I'm sure after our inaugural game the excitement will spread and a Switzerland-wide league will spring up.
(You know that offering to play WA is just the shy way of volunteering for Centre!)

Re: Netball!

... and I always thought it was great that I could have dibs on the lazy positions thanks to being tall with freakishly long arms.

I did not know about Netball till I read this post and googled it.

Re: Netball!

This week it's at my work and kind of a proof-of-principle, check we know which ones the head hole kind of thing ... but a Zurich-Bern EF fixture is a great idea and you have half a team already. I'll have a think and maybe get an invite/challenge sorted out for next month ...

Re: Netball!

I'd be willing to play on the Zurich team. Used to play WA but can always double up as WD if need be.

Re: Netball!

I'm in. It's been years since I played but this sounds like the perfect chance to get back into it.
