New age kurling – the innovative new way of playing the original curling sport – is sweeping across schools and clubs alike, its newest advocates being the Crowland Town Kurling Group.

Held at Crowland Methodist Church on Reform Street, from 2pm-4pm every Tuesday, the group meets up to play the sport which has been adapted to be played indoors on smooth surfaces.

Thanks to a £400 grant from the Lincolnshire Co-op, and a further £200 from the South Holland Tenants groups’ Treasure Chest the group has been able to buy its own equipment after having to borrow from the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.

The club itself was set up by the Lincolnshire Sports Partnership and Age Concern, and whilst its main target group is over 50s, anyone is welcome to play at the club, including those confined to wheelchairs.

It costs £2 to play at the club, which includes refreshments of tea or coffee and biscuits.
