West Linton Curling Club has close to 40 Members, who mainly reside in the village or surrounding area. It is a very friendly club and welcomes participants of all ages. We play our Curling at Murrayfield Ice Rink in Edinburgh from early October through to mid March each year. The Club runs 6 Rinks, or teams of 4 people, and competes in Inter Club competitions during the season. Two social events are held each year – A pre-Christmas Fun Night and the Annual Dinner Dance and Prize-giving in March.
Before this season we will be holding a Practice Night on Thursday 6th October at 5.30pm. We are always looking for new members so if you are interested in trying Curling, or perhaps revisiting old skills, please use the contact details shown below or by providing your details on the ‘contact’ page. We look forward to hearing from you.

Throughout the year, the club hosts a number of on-court events such as American Tennis Tournaments, Open Days, Social Mixed Doubles and Friendly Parent-Junior Days. Encouraging more play at the club, online club box leagues through Tennis Jeannie are available, and have seen a very positive response from our members.
The club also hosts a wide variety of junior competitions such as the annual Tweeddale Tennis Junior Championships, a Road to Wimbledon tournament, Borders Junior League matches, and a series of Tweeddale matchplay and ratings’ matches. More at http://www.westlintontc.org.uk/
