Hockey in Zurich

Are you based in the Zurich area and keen to play some hockey (or "Landhockey" as it is known in Switzerland)? Then come along to training and introduce yourself! Alternatively, you can contact us if you'd like to find out more information first.

We have two mens teams, a ladies team as well as Junior & Senior sections. We have a diverse, international mix of players, welcoming in recent years players from Germany, Ireland, South Africa, England, Holland & Austria amongst others. So there is usually more than one language heard in the changing room!
