This is one of the most recent additions, April 2014, to our U3A activities, and is proving to be very popular. No previous experience of the sport, or of Curling or Bowls, is necessary, as we are all Kurling beginners.
We play in Burton Joyce Village Hall, where the length of the hall and the wooden flooring make it an ideal venue. Also as we play indoors we will never have any problems with the weather.
All the necessary equipment is provided, including the special sticks used to propel the stones on their way if you have trouble bending. We play in teams so that everyone has plenty of opportunities to play at our meetings.
It is an easy sport to learn. We found that we all improved quite quickly as we got the “feel” of the stones and how hard you needed to push them towards the target, sometimes called the “house”, to be in a scoring position.
We have plenty of space for more members, so if you fancy trying the sport, put your name down on the sign-up sheet at our U3A monthly meeting or just come along to one of our Group meetings. We’ll be delighted to see you, and give you a warm welcome.
