NEW AGE KURLING
New Age Kurling Indoor Curling
As part of our innovative sports offering we have introduced New Age Kurling providing a fun indoor activity for beginners but providing a challenge for those that want to master the sport.
New Age Kurling was created by John Bennett. His disabled son, a stroke victim, asked him to invent something that he and other disabled people could all enjoy. It was while watching the Ice Curling World Championships on television in 2000 that John came up with the idea of New Age Kurling, an ice-free version of curling which was adapted to make the game inclusive to people of all abilities.
New Age Kurling has become so popular that it is recognised by most disabled unions in the United Kingdom and is fast becoming a mainstream sport in schools and after school clubs. This new sport is now played in 47 countries around the world and falls into all the government guidelines for exercise.
We have found it to be a fantastic team game with the praise and encouragement shared between players during the game raising self confidence and increasing determination to win even if they are behind at any one time.
