Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

Hmmm would love to meet for some casual games. Did some searches for casual meets around ZRH a few weeks back and couldnt find much. Most are full-on Pro clubs only.

But if you find something let me know

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

I found out from TTVZ website (official Table tennis authority for stadt Zürich ?) that we can apply for a public membership called "B-Mitgliedschaft". This membership will allow anyone to play table tennis in following locations :

> Turnhalle Riedenhalden
> Saalsporthalle


Please check - http://www.ttvz.ch/html/verein.html and then check under "Öffentliches Tischtennis".

It's 100CHF / year membership fee with TTVZ. I have sent them an e-mail and awaiting response on applying for "B-Mitgliedschaft". I will update this post once I have more info.

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

Just found out that the Dolder Bad Centre has tabletennis tables. Not sure if they are any good, but they are virtually free to use. (hiring racquets and ball costs extra). Only thing is they are only open in the summer season from 8th of May. So not sure if its outdoors or indoors.

Anyone know anything more about that?

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

I used to play a lot of table tennis , a couple of years back.

Would love to play that sport again.

I am up for playing that game on a weekly basis. Would love to kill some body fat using sport

i am staying in zurich as well, and would like to play indoor table tennis. Not the outdoor TT courts which are just so bad ...

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

I'd love to play today, but I'm stuck at home with a really bad cold

I played at the TTC Hoengg for a few times, but that's a proper club.

This B Membership sounds interesting though, if we can get a regular group together, 100 CHF is not bad.

Errrmmm....I played TT professionally till I was 16 and I can tell you there's little fat to be lost playing the sport (unless of course you're planning on doing an intensive warm up/down & stroke practice). At best you'll develop a nice pair of glutes, which the women seem to like.

I'd love to start playing seriously again, and will join anyone as soon as I can find housing in Canton Zürich (so maybe never).

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

Not sure that Swiss summer + table tennis indoors appeals to me, as they don't usually have aircons. But hey, I'd be up for it............. it's just always the question of someone organizing it

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

Usually the Table Tennis here is organized in clubs. But I was able to play at the Saalsporthalle near Enge last week. Nobody really asked for anything. There's usually clubs playing there but some open nights as well. The table tennis pitch is in the basement though and not easy to find.

Professionally? You mean someone sponsored you with a few tee shirts and a rubber or two...and if you played or trained at a high enough level to describe yourself as professional, I'd be somewhat surprised you didn't find it good for fat burning...

What people are describing as "pro" clubs, are just clubs. The people in there may look like pro's, but they really really aren't. To see what real pro's look like, I suggest making your way to the Swiss Open in Lausanne on Nov 20-21st http://www.sttopen.ch/

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

Im up for some pong. But being a very lowly player that usually plays with a can in the other hand so Id prefer a backyard or someone's basement where we can hit the beers

Re: Indoor Table Tennis - anyone anywhere today ?

Ha ha ha.... If I had space and a table I'd organise something. Unfortunately I have neither.......... maybe we should start an EF TT Club.

I haven't played for ages, but would like to give it a try again- just for fun...
