I am using my iPhone 4S to sync with Google Calendar. I don't want it to show the items of the "Sports"-calendar though, because it's a full list of possible group activities at my local gym and it would clog up my calendar.

After unselecting "Sports" in the list of calendars, the iPhone still keeps showing entries of the "Sports" calendar.

Rebooting the iPhone does not help either. Going to calendars and settings still shows the Sports-calendar unselected. When I press on "Spinning (18:45-19:30)" it would automatically add the Sports-calendar back to the list of calendars to sync.

What can I do to not see the calendar items from the Sports-calendar?

The whether sucks in Den Haag :), I would say when deselecting will apply only to new items, the old one will be still there. Delete them. Then try to add new item in Google and see if it shows up. –  Buscar 웃 Jul 3 '13 at 16:44

I assume you did go here to deselect the calenders you do not want synced. Google website: www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect –  Buscar 웃 Jul 3 '13 at 16:54

You are welcome :) ....the weather still sucks in Den Haag, here in California its about 30 Celsius. PS; I used to live in Baarn (next to Hilversum). –  Buscar 웃 Jul 3 '13 at 19:57
    
Yes! It's the Netherlands. Summer started June 21, but we still have gray cold days and are still waiting for better weather. –  ujjain Jul 3 '13 at 20:39

This is odd. I'd presume that your Sports calendar events somehow got to one of your other calendars without you knowing. What I'd do is:

  1. first tap on "Hide all" when in Calendars

  2. Next ensure that you do not see Any of your "Sports" calendar events (any events at all from other calendars shouldn't be visible either)

  3. Next start selecting to show the rest of your calendars one by one without ever selecting the "Sports" calendar

  4. The first time you see the culprit events appear - this is the malignant calendar which contains events from "Sports"
