General Information:-

The curling season in Moray is up and running with club and competitions under way for the 2014 / 2015 season at the Moray Leisure Centre Elgin.
The curling season is from the 1st September through to a date in March with the occasional break for Christmas holidays etc.

All of these clubs are looking for new members from the ages of 8 to 88. Visit the Moray Province web site and get updated on curling in Moray http://moraycurling.co.uk/

Moray Province formed a subcommittee “M.P Curling Development Group”  in 2007  to host try curling followed by coaching to introduce the community male or female into this wonderful sport,  encourage them to take up curling, join a local club and then progress to a level that suits each individual i.e. as a club curler who is happy to have a competitive social game, or to the other extreme go for gold at Olympic standard.
