An astounding 96 pupils rocked up to Curl Aberdeen for this year’s Grampian Schools ASN Curling Festival.

The popular event, which is continually booked to capacity, gives pupils with a range of additional support needs and disabilities (and their teachers) the opportunity to give the sport a go in a relaxed and adapted environment.

It is hoped that many of the pupils will go on to play curling regularly with both standing and wheelchair curling offered in both Aberdeen City and Moray. Aberdeen Wheelchair Curling Club has recently had a bit of a facelift under the management of ex-player, Craig Carter, and we look forward to seeing more players join the club & the formation of a junior programme.

A massive thank you goes to the staff at Curl Aberdeen for hosting and delivering the event, and to Active Schools Aberdeen for organising such a fantastic day!

If you, or someone you know, lives with a physical, sensory or intellectual impairment and would like to get more involved in curling or any other sport, please get in touch with Alison Shaw (Regional Manager for Scottish Disability Sport) on 07828 744 848 or
