Curling may not be the most played sport in the Falkirk area, but it’s quintessentially Scottish and there is a local club which plays competitively.

The Falkirk Ladies 1960 Curling Club has 26 members who compete in teams of four in matches against other clubs from across the country.

From its name you may have guessed it was established 53 years ago which pays tribute to the dedicated women who have kept it going all these years.

There are 14 non-playing members who simply go along to offer the teams support and attend the events such as the Christmas tea and days out to the theatre so you don’t need a competitive streak in you to get involved.

Secretary Anna Burnside said: “Curling can be played by all ages and generations of family can even play together.

“It’s a very fun and sociable game and lots of curlers combine it with outdoor bowling or golf in the summer. If you’d like to try it it’s only £1 for a taster session so why not.”
