Curling after Braehead - the way forward

We continue to work hard on your behalf to deliver a new Curling Facility to serve the Greater Glasgow Curling Community and beyond.

We hosted two meetings earlier this week (4th & 5th February 2020) to give an update on our progress.

Here are a few of the key messages delivered during the course of the meetings:

  • Positive discussions are ongoing with Glasgow Life.
  • We are meeting Renfrewshire Leisure, w/c 24th February 2020.
  • We are not in a position to guarantee the providing of a new/alternative Curling Facility by September 2020 to serve the 20/21 Curling Season.
  • Clubs should now proceed with making alternative arrangements with other venues for the 20/21 curling season.
  • We are keen to hear from any members who may be giving up curling due to the impact of the Braehead closure. We’d like to assist members to keep playing curling, perhaps by joining a new club for example. Please email me: This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • We are committed to doing our very best to establish a New Curling Facility for September 2021 to serve the 21/22 Curling Season and beyond.
  • To be financially robust, it is likely that a sustainable New Curling Facility will need to be part of a mixed-use facility - including skating and potentially ice hockey.
  • Scottish Curling have given us space on their website to post updates: https://www.scottishcurling.org/clubs-members/glasgow-curling/

Special thanks go to the steering group, led by Gary Macfarlane, for all their continued hard work in helping create a new curling facility.

We will stay in touch. If you know others who would like to be included in these updates, please ask them to drop me a line.
