NCA Curling

The Peak Ice Rink has a main arena with six sheets available for general curling. In a separate annex is the Scottish Curling Nation Curling Academy with four sheets of ice. This facility is first and foremost a training facility and is fitted out with all the equipment necessary for British and Scottish teams to prepare for Olympic and World Championships. Clubs and individual curlers can be allocated any spare ice that is not being used by these elite players.

Ice can be booked through the Peak Booking Team. Please contact them on 01786 273555 (option 2, option 1) or via bookings email alternatively come in and see them at the Peak.

Indoor Grand Match 2020

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.
