This was something that our British guests absolutely insisted on. A holiday resort without a tennis court? Unthinkable! And that’s why it’s been possible to play tennis in Zermatt since as long ago as the Thirties. In addition to some hotels that have their own private tennis courts, brand new tennis courts are also available at the Obere Matten sport arena, at the centre of the village. The Raiffeisen Open Zermatt takes place every July.
The ultimate challenge for the adventurous: Travel up to the Schwarzsee paradise as often as you like in the cable car, and race back down into the valley with the dirt scooter (downhill trottinett/scooter).

Fly fishing is a sport popular throughout the world and also has a passionate following in Switzerland. Fly fishing is a method of angling, different in that the bait, known as a fly, is too light to be cast. For this reason, the load for casting is provided by the weight of the special fishing line.
