Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Curling Club!
Strath Curl meets every Wednesday at Intu Braehead at 2:20 for a mix of training drills led by our qualified coaches and friendly practice games. All equipmet is provided but you are required to bring clean, flat shoes and warm, comfy clothes. Players of all abilities are more than welcome to join the fun and take part in one of Scotland's national sports.
If you're looking for something a bit more competitive then you're in luck. We participate in a range of competitions for all levels. Beginners can also take part in friendly games against other local clubs. More serious players can throw their hat into the ring for the SSS Curling League, which is where we play against other universities across the country. The highlight of the year is our weekend trip to the SSS Open held in Stranraer every April. Strathclyde are the reigning champions are we're looking forward to another huge year on the ice.
Don't forget to join us at our weekly social gatherings on Wednesday evenings in the City Centre!

MEMBERSHIP – WHAT DO I NEED?
1. Sports Union Membership – this is a flat £36 fee for the year (or £23 for one semester) which goes directly back to the club to fund various club activities and operations, including:
- Personal accident and public liability insurance
- Coaching fees, competition entry and transport costs, club equipment and external facility hire
2. Sports Club Bolt-on Fee – we also charge a £45 joining fee for the year (or £25 in your first year) which is charged to subsidise additional sport specific costs, such as ice fees. This fee is charged on top of the Sports Union membership and again, goes directly back to the club and participants taking part in our activities.
