Christmas Workplace New Age Kurling Competition

Taking place at Ellesmere College, this Christmas-themed New Age Kurling event is the perfect opportunity to get active with your colleagues, try a new sport, and get into the festive spirit! You will play a round robin of games, competing against a variety of workplaces.

As well as prizes for the winning teams, there will also be a prize for the best Christmas fancy dress, so grab the Santa hats and tinsel and get creative! Festive refreshments will be provided.

New Age Kurling is a form of the original Winter game of curling, but adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface, such as a sports hall, rather than on ice. The game is played by pushing stones comprising of bearings along the ground towards a target with the idea being to get as many of your stones closer to the centre of the target than your opponents stones.

This is a sport that can be played by both able bodied and disabled people of all ages and abilities. There must be at least one member of each gender present on your team.

Please ensure that all team members come in suitable clothing and footwear to play new Age Kurling and that you bring plenty of drinks. Arrival is from 5.45 pm, with the competition starting promptly at 6.15 pm.

Bookings are made on a first come, first served basis.

Two teams are permitted per workplace: additional teams may be requested. This is to ensure that a variety of workplaces can take part.

Additional players: It is possible to bring up to 2 extra players on the night as substitutes (bringing your team to 6 players). Payment (additional £5.00 per additional player) and names will need to be provided on arrival.
