Hi All

Having just arrived in Uppsala I'm wondering if there are any expats or locals who would like a regular game of squash or if anyone has an opening on their bandy or indoor football teams.

I'm a 28 year guy from the north of England, currently waiting for my personal number to come through to start the SFI!

Cheers!

Steve

Cool! Why not join a Swedish one? Learn Swedish and play!

It's innebandy by the way.

There are squash courts at the UTK Hallen ( http://www2.idrottonline.se/default.aspx?id=228790 ), so you could ask there.

I suppose I could play you once at the weekend, as I could use a run around, but as I now live in Stockholm it is a bit of a treck.

It is not good to sign up for more than one game anway, until you know the standard biggrin.gif.

I just moved into my appartment though, so it will be a while until I get some time for something like that. Living in boxworld is grating biggrin.gif.

Thanks, anyone know of a local innebandy club in Uppsala, where you can start playing as an absolute beginner!?!?

Hi All. This seems to be an old thread, but I've lived in Uppsala for three years and looking for somewhere to play innebandy (I watched a game in Fyrishov last week and caught the bug!). I used to play ground hockey when I was younger a bit but am a total beginner with innebandy and need to learn the rules/ideally do some training! It seems like a hard sport to get into if you dont have a team (I heard korpen was good to begin with but requires you to have a team).

Anyone have any tips or has room on their team for another crazy englishman!?
