About the Club
Formed in 1815, Dumbarton Curling Club is the oldest club currently playing at Braehead Curling Rink, and one of the oldest curling clubs in Scotland.
The club meets most Tuesday nights during the curling season, which runs from the beginning of September through to the beginning of April.
Membership of the club is open to men and women of all ages and abilities. In their 1st season with the club, all members will play lead or second, although we actively encourage players to play different positions during the season if warranted, and if the player feels comfortable playing at third or skip.
If you're new to curling help and advice will always be available from our own club coach, as well as from our other more experienced members. We also encourage inexperienced players to go along to the Braehead Sweep and/or also join the Braehead Virtual Club, where coaching by fully qualified coaches is always provided.
We are actively seeking new players to join us either as a full member or as an occasional substitute.
The club also has several social evenings throughout the season, to which all of our members are invited. We have 3 such events scheduled during the course of the season, which are
- Pre-Season Dinner - Normally held 1 or 2 weeks prior to our first club night
- Christmas Dinner - Although we call it our Christmas dinner, it is normally held early in the New Year to ensure as many members as possible are able to attend.
- A.G.M. - Our Annual General Meeting is held in April a few weeks after our last club curling session. The A.G.M. is preceded by a meal and is concluded with our prize-giving to all our competition winners throughout the season
