150th Anniversary

Stepping on to the ice last night there could be no mistaking that this season is a special one for Aberdeen Curling Club. 

Curl Aberdeen’s Manager, Tom Brewster, was approached a few weeks ago to see whether we could include our 150th Anniversary motif somewhere on the ice and what we saw for the first time last night far exceeded our expectations.


Our celebratory logo, which you’ll see again throughout the season, has been frozen in behind all six home-end hacks and if that doesn’t inspire you to visit the rink regularly (by signing up the various knock-out competitions) I don’t know what will!

Keep safe and see you on the ice!

Season 2021/22

It seem like the summer break has lasted much longer this year but, as the nights start to draw in again, will find me curled up in a chair by the fireside, Of Course Not! Not when there are stones to be played and ice to sweep.

As we adjust to the new 'normal' there is one thing I'm sure we're all happy to see has endured through this and many other challenging times - the club

2021 marks Aberdeen Curling Club's 150th Anniversary and it's something we should celebrate. The Committee and I do have a couple of plans which we're working on and which will be announced shortly but, to whet your appetite, I strongly suggest you keep an eye out for the Centenary Trophy Bonspiel sign up.

I look forward to seeing you all on the ice again soon but, in the meantime, stay safe, curl well and let's give the club the birthday it deserves!

Members Update

I can now confirm that due to the lockdown continuing we will not curl again this season. Our Winter League competition was unfinished and is therefore null and void.

More information will follow regarding our club AGM and next season in due course. Meantime enjoy the spring and summer and see you on the ice in September, all being well.

Please try to attend the Curl Aberdeen Zoom AGM on 13 May.
