Kippen Curling Club

The Club was founded in 1838 and admitted to membership of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club in 1843, making it one of the oldest curling clubs in Scotland. In those days there were thirty players, all of whom were men, and today we still have around thirty members, although nowadays the membership is split fairly evenly between the sexes.

The original curling pond was at Crawfordston Farm and over the years, amongst other locations, the Club has played on the old curling pond on Kippen Common and on Loch Laggan, when the weather was suitably cold. Fortunately the game is no longer weather dependent and we now play at the Peak in Stirling, the season running from September through until March. In addition to our own Club matches we also take part in a number of the Forth & Endrick competitions and in the Forth Valley Bonspiel, as well as some other tournaments further afield.

We are always keen to welcome new members, irrespective of age and experience and for those interested in trying the sport the Try Curling classes held at the Peak are a great way to see what it’s all about. Further tuition is then available for those who get the curling bug. Contact for more information.

With the 2016/17 season now over, the AGM (to which all interested parties are invited) will be held in the Cross Keys on 11th May at 7.30 p.m.
