The Curling Development Group, along with the aid of Scottish Curling and SSS, is charged with supporting all Scottish Student Curling clubs and curlers throughout the academic year. We work to deliver events and committee support for active clubs, while also helping to improve growth and inclusion within our sport across Scotland.
Our Scottish Student League is hosted at the Dewar’s Centre in Perth and is played across the academic year, while our annual 3-day Open Championship is held in Stranraer at the end of the season. This residential event welcomes guest teams – such as alumni members and outside institutions – as well as all current students across our Scottish institutions. This suitably encapsulates the traditionally welcoming and social character of our sport.
