“Abdie man saves Europe”
See Club History Page
In 1862 when our winters were more dependable, for outdoor curling, the club invested in its own club hut. The hut which contains many original features is a Category ‘C’ listed building, as there are very few curling huts remaining in Scotland.
Abdie Curling Club is a lively club with approximately 40 members and we are always looking for folks to join us. All our members, both experienced and beginners play “competitive games” shortly after joining the club. We play in the Lomond and Cupar Province Leagues (part of Area 10 of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club). In addition, we play in a number of inter-club games, Pairs, and Points competitions and the occasional bonspiel. We are also keen supporters of the Loofie League, a competition designed to give less experienced members the opportunity to play against other clubs.
Although the majority of our games are now played at the Dewars Centre in Perth, our roots are at Lindores Loch in the Kingdom of Fife. The majority of our curlers still live and work in Abernethy and Newburgh, close to Lindores, but we do have members from all the eairts and pairts - Aberfeldy in the north; Edinburgh in the south; Forfar in the east and Ardnamurchan in the west.
A curling match, in the parish of Abdie, which took place on Friday, 28 January 1831, some 186 years ago paved the way to the formation of Abdie Curling Club. We have a long and colourful history and, in 1838, we were one of the fourteen founder members of the Grand Caledonian Curling Club, now known as the Royal Caledonian Curling Club.
