Field Hockey clubs in Zurich/ Recommended stores, online sites to buy equipment

Hi All,

It's been 5 months now since I visited Switzerland and I'm kinda bored after work doing nothing.

I played Field Hockey for 4 years, back in Sri Lanka for my University team. I was wondering if I can continue playing here in Switzerland and tried to find some clubs in Zurich. unfortunately I couldn't find any.

Is anyone here knows about any clubs in Zurich? When is the season begins?
I would also be thankful if someone can recommend me a shop to buy equipment. There aren't many shops in Zurich who sells Field Hockey stuff.

Thank you.

In case you are interested in coaching, our son's (very young) club in Wollerau (Hockey Club Höfe) might have a requirement. Club was founded a year ago, has two kids teams and is still looking to grow and professionalize.

For buying equipment, no alternative to online shops really.

Hi @komsomolez,

Thank you for the information. I'm sorry..I'm not that much into coaching. At the moment I'm searching a club near Zurich city so I can join practices after the work/ can easily travel from home. Wollerau is bit far away (1.5 hours by train) from where I live at the moment.

Yes. Only option seems to be ordering online

Re: Field Hockey clubs in Zurich/ Recommended stores, online sites to buy equipment

I've seen field hockey training at Buchlern sports center on a Tues or Thurs evening, but hey, you know there's a pandemic on at the moment.

There have been other threads on this, so do a forum search. If you find anything interesting, feel free to drop me a pm, maybe we can go to a training together.

Hi @krlock3,

Thanks for the info. Yes I saw some 'old' posts posted few years back regarding this. Thought of creating new post just to bring the topic up and get new news.
