Sports in Switzerland

Hello everyone,

The Olympic Games are now just a few days away and we would like to talk about sports.

What sports are the most popular and/or unusual in Switzerland?

Are sports facilities easily accessible there? Where and how can one find sports clubs in the region?

Are there sports events regularly held in the country?

And you? What is your favourite sport? Which one(s) do you practice in Switzerland?

Thank you in advance,


I like to play hockey it's a wonderful game

I find that in Switzerland, being a sporty country they do not televise most sports.

Sports most commonly played and watched include, darts, ice hockey, soccer, swimming, tennis and hand ball.
Sports such as field hockey, rugby, athletics, golf, indoor hockey and squash are seldom or never televised.

I think the problem in Switzerland is that there is no depth in sports because not much emphasis is placed on school sports.
