The sports and leisure area (Sport- und Freizeitarena) in the centre of Zermatt offers a wide range of options for different sports.
The sports facilities promise a variety of attractions both in summer and winter. Tennis enthusiasts enjoy games on the four artificial-grass courts as an alternative to summer outdoor activities in Zermatt’s mountains. In winter, beginners and experts alike play curling matches and games of Bavarian curling on the ice rinks.
