Beach Volley in Zurich

With the sun, the urge to play beach volley has come out as well. I've heard that there's afterworks games going on here in Zurich that are free to all, but I have no idea
- where?
- if they are open yet or when it starts?
- if they are for all levels (I'm not thát good)
- if anyone else here would be up for teaming up and playing. Would definitely be less scary to join the cool people if I weren't alone.

I found this thread
Want to play some volleyball?
but that was mostly about Bern, so I decided to start a new thread.

Sonnymonny, I guess there's more volley players amidst the Sunday 5-a-side female soccer players ?

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

Hi konijn,

Im not sure about the whole after work thing. I do know that there is a free beach volleyball court at oberer letten which is close to limmatplatz in Zurich. http://map.search.ch/d/tc0owixmm

I would definatly be up for playing once if you have a ball and we can get some more players.

It is busy so im not sure when the best time to go is?

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

I guess the best option is to make a poll for dates and times, I would suggest one evening after work around 7pm, maybe a monday because it wouldnt be so busy, but thats just an idea.

I think we could get enough people to make it happen.

Do you have a ball?

The place is called primitivo, across the river from pier west. Both places are good spots for outdoor parties (BYOB or pay at the bar) and sports with two sand courts, a mini skate park and swimming in the river ( if your brave enough you can jump off of the bridge) You'll know your there when you see all of the graffiti. Great alternative hang out place.
The best time to go to play is mid week. The weekends are packed full of people.

Don't have a ball as of yet, but will buy one this week.
I was planning on checking out the place tonight and then setting up a calendar entry soon. Monday nights after work sound good indeed.

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

Sounds like a plan!

A ball would only cost about 30chf anyway.

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

How about mondays at 19:00? I work there until 18:00 M-F so I can stand in and reserve a court for us. But I can't stop people from playing if no one is there on time, I can however call next game while we wait for people to show up.

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

I would love to play too! I just need to make sure hubby is home in time to convince the kid to go to sleep. Unfortunately my ball got stuck in the rafters in the gym back home and when it came back down, it walked away with someone

I forgot to add that you can get a massage there as well, (starting in two weeks) its on the sun deck above the bar. The masseuse is fabulous

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

OK, I think the time is right and I set up an entry in the calendar:
Beach Volley, Zurich

I know next Monday is a day off and so strictly speaking not 'after work', but I'm up for it anyway. That is, if the weather stays up ofcourse.

Thanks for the Primitivo tip, CA dreamin, looks like a great place!

Hope to see y'all there, I'll bring a ball,

V

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

My post yetserday never made it, so here is a meaningless post to say I am in. There are also some nice courts on the West side of the lake down a ways. Another option for weekend play.

Re: Beach Volley in Zurich

Its now been scheduled as an event so add you meaningless response to the RSVP. And bring a bottle, which we can drink while you demonstrate you athletic physique to the ladieez.
