New Age Kurling

It’s always lovely to see lots of enthusiastic young people ready to come and have a go at something new. The event started with everyone having a go at some practise activities trying to knock a stone off the mat, and trying to aim to get the stone through mini gates.

Once the practise run was over each team got to take part in a tournament, although the main emphasis was on doing your best and having fun. It was great to see so many of the children grow in confidence as the tournament went on; their progress really was fantastic! One girl had been struggling to get her stone to land on the mat, however towards the final games her perseverance paid off and she landed it right on the middle target – maximum points! The excitement when points were won was felt across the entire sports hall, helping to create a really enjoyable atmosphere.

The final results were:

1st – St Peters

2nd – Frogwell

3rd – Kings Lodge

4th and 5th – Frogwell

Well done to everyone involved!
