Letter from Chairman Liz Goldie and President Robert Boyd
Our curling club officially dates back to 1854, although it is thought the origins could be even earlier. Ken Gray completed research and published a booklet A Brief History of Ayr and Alloway Curling Club 1854-2010, which can be downloaded below. This was based on the booklet provided to members in 2004, as part of the 150th Celebrations.
David and Shirley Scott
David and Shirley Scott are true stalwarts of the Club. Sadly David passed away in 2019, having served as Club treasurer, for a staggering 22 years, from 1993 to 2015. Shirley was President in 2012, and continues to be a regular player, with not inconsiderable skill. Enjoy this short video from 2014, when they partnered each other in the Club pairs competition.

Find out more about joining our club
Ayr and Alloway is one the largest clubs playing at Ayr Ice Rink.
It is a particualrly friendly club, with over 60 members, and most games are played at 5pm on Wednesday, from October to March. We are keen to recruit new members, of any ability, who are guaranteed games in their first season. Send an email to the secretary for more information.
Social curling, yet competitive
You will not find a friendlier club, but there is still a competitive element with ten rinks in our league.
League & Knockout
We have ten rinks in the league playing each other once per
season. The Knockout has four mini-league games, followed by a semi-final and
final. We enter 2 rinks in the Day League.
We play several inter-club "friendlies", and enter rinks in many of the open competitions including the Eglinton Jug and Rink Championship. We also play Points, Pairs and a Cue Competition.
We have a pre-season barbecue or picnic, group practice sessions, coaching and various social nights. The prizegiving and AGM are preceded by a meal held in the Abbotsford Hotel.
