Indoor Grand Match on 23rd October 2021
In a time of milder winters, the Indoor Grand Match is based on the traditional Grand Matches which are held on a frozen loch when temperatures and ice conditions permit. The first Indoor Grand Match was held to celebrate the millennium, and due to its success, it has continued every five years since.
An imaginary line will be drawn between the River Forth and River Clyde to decide the two sides, and games will be held at around 17 participating ice rinks across Scotland, with clubs opting to either play at home or away. Scores are tallied at the end of all the games with the winning side being the one with the most points.
The Grand Match is deeply embedded in the heritage of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club, so we hope that all of our clubs will be able to join us in celebrating the indoor version
Due to Stirling District moving to LEVEL 4 lockdown restrictions, there will now be no curling either in the NCA or the main arena. All arrangements for temporary leagues are now on hold. We can only plan for a restart when the national lockdown is removed and Stirling is placed in LEVEL 2. As we have arranged leagues and received teams to play in these leagues, this can be rolled out as soon as go ahead is given.
