Dumfries to host National Championships

DUMFRIES Ice Bowl has been selected as the host venue for the 2024 Scottish National Curling Championships.

The venue delivered an outstanding tournament earlier this year with

top ice conditions in an arena-setting that added to the excitement and feel of the event.

Scottish Curling’s competitions manager Charlene Graham, said: “It’s fantastic to know that our national championships have a home for 2024.

“We’d like to thank Dumfries Curling for their commitment; everyone involved in the championships is working hard to ensure this event is a focal point in the calendar and brings together the top curlers from across Scotland. I have no doubt that we can achieve this vision together with the team at the Ice Bowl.”

Dumfries Ice Bowl made its debut as host of the Scottish championships in 2022 and went into its second round in February this year.

The arena-setting elevated the tournament to the feeling of an international championship and created a special atmosphere for

athletes and spectators alike.

Councillor Ian Blake said: “For many years the council has worked tirelessly to bring major winter sports events to the Ice Bowl, and we are thrilled that a partnership between Dumfries Curling and Scottish Curling has brought the Scottish Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships to Dumfries in the 2023-24 season.”

Councillor Jackie McCamon added: “Curling is a wonderful sport to watch and play and it is thriving in our area. We hope to convert more people to the sport through continuing to bring big tournaments to the Ice Bowl.”
