Looking for ways to engage in fitness activities

Hello to all. New Expat just arrived and still wet behind the ears. I am looking for any suggestions for groups that enjoy fitness activities (pick up basketball, soccer, hiking groups, anyone up for a fitness run, etc) in the zurich or Winterthur areas. I am in Effretikon and I haven't seen much happening here...yet. Thanks!

Maybe these folks are worth a try:

Zürich Hash House Harriers

or Schaffhausen and Winterthur Hash House Harriers

Cheers,
Nick

I sometimes participate in a few of the Hiking and Skiing focused groups on meetup.com. You tend to meet quite a range of nationalities, and the common language is often English.

Re: Looking for ways to engage in fitness activities

Are you looking for things in English or is German fine? If yes and you want to meet locals look for a Verein. Effretikon will have a Turnverein there you will do lots of different group sport once a weel with a mixed range of age. They might also have a Frauenriege only women or Männerriege only men.

If you are more serious or want i.e. only basketball, check Winterthur. Unihockey is rather big in Switzerland. If you don't mind the English look for Netball Zurich.

Have fun

Re: Looking for ways to engage in fitness activities

I can second meetup.com as a great way to find groups of sports lovers. I had a quick look and there's a running group based in Zurich: https://www.meetup.com/CityRunning/. Seems to be bi-lingual.
