Did you know that Coupar Angus and Kettins Curling Club is one of the oldest clubs in Scotland having been founded in 1749, just after the 1745 Jacobite Rising. In order to preserve this history we desperately need new members. They play their games at Perth and Forfar Ice rinks throughout the winter.
Curling is a friendly, sociable sport. All you need is warm comfortable clothes and a pair of clean soled, flat bottomed shoes. You can progress to proper curling shoes once you realise how much fun it is. The Ice Rink provides the curling stones and a brush needed to keep the ice clean and help the stone with speed and direction. A game usually takes about 2 hours and after play you can retire to the bar for a chat and refreshment. There are four players in each team and we try to travel together whenever possible. Our club usually plays in Perth Ice Rink but there may be opportunities to play in Forfar. The cost last season was £13 but if you have a Live Active card it reduces to £11.50, this includes the use of stones and brushes. This card can be used in other P&K sport facilities.
At the start of the season there are Beginners classes who progress to having their own league. If you are interested in finding out more please contact myself Liz Ireland, President on 01828 627564 or Barbara Allan, Secretary on 01828 670251.
