Shadforth WI Kurling Corner
Kurling in Shadforth Village Hall
"New Age Kurling" is a form of the game of Curling but instead of playing on ice it is played on any smooth flooring, such as at Shadforth Village Hall! The game is played with rubber kurling stones which have three ball bearings on the bottom that allow the stones to move along the ground towards the target, like in the traditional game, but warmer! The game can be played by able-bodied and less able-bodied people on an equal footing as it can be played from a standing or a seated position using a pusher.
New Age Kurling is one of the fastest growing sports and it is now being played in 23 countries around the world. Not wanting to be left out, after initially borrowing a kit from Age Concern, grants from the Cooperative Community Fund and Age Concern (Thank you!) have enabled Shadforth WI to buy a Kurling Kit and start Kurling sessions at Shadforth Village Hall from Spring 2009.
Shadforth WI Kurling sessions are held regularly in Shadforth Village Hall (a small fee is charged for each session). To check when the next New Age Kurling session is, or the date of the next session open to non-WI members, see the Programme.
