A few of Auckland's new curlers

11 Apr 2011 – Auckland Curling Club's season-opening Have A Go night last Sunday 10 April was a big success says club President Al Langille.

"We had 50 new players take to the ice," he said. "And we hope to see many of them back for more in the club or school league this year."

The club will follow up with a skills and training session on Sunday 17th, and after the Easter break the club league proper will start on Sunday 1st May.

18 Oct 2010 – For the third year running, Auckland Curling Club's Premier League Final was a last-stone thriller. And for the third year running, the skip of the winning team was a Scotsman called Kenny.

Last year Kenny Thomson led A.R.S.E. to a dramatic extra-end win to take the Cameron Shield, and this year Altitude's Kenny Williamson clinched the title with his last stone to repeat his team's 2008 victory.

13 Jul 2010 – For the first time in the club was founded in 1996, Auckland Curling Club entered two teams in the Bonspiel called earlier this month.

New Zealand is one of the few countries where curling is still often played in the traditional crampit style. There are regular competitions on artificial ice (indoors at Dunedin and Gore, outdoors at Alexandra and Naseby), and other competitions are played on natural ice when the weather and ice conditions allow.

17 May 2010 – A record number of teams in this year's Auckland Curling league has created a welcome headache for club organisers.

Club president Peter Taylor says that curlers cannot get enough ice time for teams to play every week. "We now have 20 teams entered in our league", he said. "However, we can only accommodate two rounds of games - 16 teams - on a club night, so some sides are forced to sit out each week".

8 March 2010 – A record crowd filled the ice rink at Paradice Avondale for Auckland Curling’s public "Have A Go" sessions on Sunday evening. Exposure from TV coverage of the Vancouver Olympics was the key to the increased interest said Club President Peter Taylor.

"We had a lot of people say that they really got their first proper look at the game during the Winter Olympics coverage," said Mr Taylor. "And once they appreciated the skill and the subtleties of curling, people really wanted to try it out for themselves."
