Curling – but not as we know it!

Last Friday, a small group of pupils from St. Philip’s were invited to try a new sport: curling, but with a difference!  It is called New Age Kurling, and instead of sliding stones on ice, the stones are rolled along any smooth, flat surface using a set of ball-bearings.

“New Age Kurling is a derivative of the original curling game on ice.  The main difference is that it can be played by able bodied and people with disabilities alike, and it can be played indoors on any surface such as sports halls, dance halls, church or community halls, office breakout areas, classrooms, school playgrounds, corridors and even in disused car parks.

Three children from Osprey attended and had a great experience. Take a look at them in action:
