Lots of opportunities in Geneva and Vaud this summer for girls to discover netball!
Switzerland has just won the Challenge Cup at the 2017 Netball Europe Under 17 Championship, taking the gold medal after convincing wins in all three of its championship games.
This is the second time in three years that Swiss Netball has taken the gold medal and Challenge Cup, after victory in 2015, and silver medal position in 2016. The team was composed of 12 junior members of the Swiss National Squad, who train throughout the year, at venues in the cantons of Geneva and Zug.
This year’s championships took place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from 3-5 March, and brought together established netball nations such as England and Wales, as well as nations where netball is still developing, including Switzerland, which only fielded its first Under 17 team in 2010.
“We are very proud of this fantastic achievement by our young talented team”, said Swiss Netball President, Emma Connolly. “Netball is still very much a new sport in Switzerland, so we hope that this win will encourage even more young Swiss girls and women to join a netball club and try out this phenomenal team sport”.
