Get Yourself Curling in 23/24

Curling Season 2023/24 is fast approaching and I hope you are as excited as I am! I’ve been back on the ice training at the National Curling Academy now for 3 weeks… I know what you’re thinking, it’s still summer! Even so, entries for next season are starting to come out and I can’t wait to see everyone enjoying curling all around the country again. I’ve compiled a few options below for a variety of levels of curler, BUT this list is certainly not extensive and if there isn’t something that quite hits the spot for you, contact the team at BCS and we will do our best to advise on an event that may suit your needs.
