Ayr and Alloway Curling Club was founded in 1854 and with its present-day mixed membership it is one of the largest clubs playing at Ayr Ice Rink.

The Club has 40 Playing members (an even mixture of men and  women) who comprise the 10 teams which contest the League and Knock-out competitions throughout the season.

Wallace Allan is still very competitive

The playing members are supported by a good pool of Playing Reserves.  Most of the active reserves can be assured of many games throughout the season, being in demand when regular players are unavailable through holidays, illness etc. We are still very keen to recruit new members. Contact the secretary for details.

The Club meets at Ayr Ice Rink, Limekiln Road, Ayr with all ten rinks taking five sheets of ice every Wednesday at the same time, usually at 5.00pm.  As a result of this scheduling it means that members can enjoy and generate a good club atmosphere before, during and especially after every keenly contested game thereby enhancing the very sociable and friendly reputation of the Club.  When playing at the 5.00 pm session several members will thereafter enjoy a meal provided by the Ice Rink caterers.

Opening game 28 Sept 2016
