Dumbarton Curling Club

Welcome to Our Site

"Since we have enjoyed good fellowship on the ice, and are resolved that we will meet and form ourselves in a band of brotherhood and fellowship, and that we will be called Dumbarton Curling Club." - These are the opening words in the minutes of the first meeting held in 1815.

Membership is open to both male and female players of all ages and abilities.

You don't require any expensive equipment, just a pair of training shoes and a jumper, as all other equipment will be provided.

Coaching from our own qualified coach will always be available to our members, particularly for those who are new to curling, and our more experienced players are always willing to provide advice and assistance.

More information pertaining to Dumbarton Curling Club can be found on our About Us page.

about usAbout the Club
Formed in 1815, Dumbarton Curling Club is one of the oldest curling clubs in Scotland.  
The club meets most Wedsday nights at The Waterfront Leisure Centre during the curling season, which runs from the beginning of September through to the end of March.
Membership Policy
We are actively seeking new players to join us either as a full member or even as an occasional substitute. 
Membership of the club is open to men and women of all ages, physical ability and curling ability.  Newcomers to the sport are particularly welcome.  
Any new members will initially play at lead or second, although we actively encourage players to play different positions during the season if warranted, but only if the player feels comfortable playing at third or skip.  
IMG 1891If you're new to curling help and advice will always be available from our own club coach, as well as from our other more experienced members.  We also encourage inexperienced players to go along to attend any beginners sessions that may be available, and/or also join the Glasgow Gateway Club, where coaching by fully qualified coaches is always provided.
The club also has several social evenings throughout the season, to which all of our members are invited.  We have 3 such events scheduled during the course of the season, which are: 
  • Pre-Season Dinner - Normally held 1 or 2 weeks prior to our first club night
  • Christmas Dinner - Although we call it our Christmas dinner, it is normally held early in the New Year to ensure as many members as possible are able to attend.
  • A.G.M. - Our Annual General Meeting is held in April a few weeks after our last club curling session.  The A.G.M. is preceded by a meal and is concluded with our prize-giving to all our competition winners throughout the season
