Greenacres will host the first European Seniors’ Invitation Curling Championships, October 29 - November 1 (apologies for previously posting wrong dates). This is the competition that we hoped might go ahead last season, but had to be postponed. The event is supported by funding from the WWCC 2005 legacy fund and sponsorship by the Greenacres rink.
Scotland's Kirsty Letton, who skipped her team to silver medals at the World Seniors in Vierumaki, will head the Scottish challenge in the women's event which will feature twelve teams, including rinks from the Netherlands, England and Ireland.
Eighteen teams will contest the men’s competition. Teams from Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway and Poland will be there along with home nations England, Ireland and Wales and eight teams from Scotland including Graeme Adam’s Scottish Champions, who took fourth place at the World Seniors.
The draw will be made in the next couple of weeks. It promises to be an exciting few days at Greenacres! Put the dates in your diaries.
