It's all about the ice PDF Print E-mail
Winter Games NZ

18 Aug 2015 – Auckland Curling's August newsletter covers the recent discussion with Paradice to try and get some resolution to the ongpong problem of uneven ice on the outer two sheets. Despite the best efforts of Paradice staff they had reached the stage of being virtually unplayable on some nights.

We are cautiously optimistic of some improvement, and will confirm the draw for this Sunday (23rd) after the schools session on Thursday evening.

The newsletter also looks forward to the international events for NZ teams over the next few months, starting next week with the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ.

Come curling in Auckland

19 Jun 2015 – Our June newsletter has the low-down on the our new curling season. Now that we know precisely how many teams we have we can confirm that we will have a two-pool format for the first half of the season.

We can confirm game fees for spares, offer our congratulations to the winners of the NZ Mixed Fours Championship held over Queen's Birthday Weekend, and we can point you towards plenty of online resources for both new AND experienced curlers.

Mini-spiel to open 2015 season PDF Print E-mail
Come curling in Auckland

15 May 2015 – Auckland Curling's season will open with a social mini-bonspiel this Sunday 17th May. This will comprise short 3-end games throughout the evening.

Most teams will be "mix and match" drawn from a hat – but if new curlers have already formed a team and want to play together then that's fine too! Please bring nibbles to share. Not everyone will be playing at once so there will be plenty of time to socialise.

And if you want to play this season – every week, most weeks or occasionally – then now is the time to sign up and let us know.

Try Curling in Auckland PDF Print E-mail
2015 auck have a go

2 Apr 2015 – Aucklanders will have two opportunities to try the world's fastest-growing Winter Olympic sport when Auckland Curling has two open "Have a Go" sessions in early May.

The two sessions will be held at Paradice Ice Rink in Avondale on the Sunday evenings of 3rd May and 10th May.

"It doesn't matter if you've never been on the ice before," said Auckland Curling President Ian Ford. "We will give you an introduction to curling, show and teach you the basics, and then you'll play your first game – all within your two-hour lesson."

"We will supply all of the curling gear. All you need are comfortable clothes that you can stretch out in – layers are a good idea – and clean, flat-soled footwear. Sports shoes are ideal. Some people like a beanie to keep their head warm."

A Curling Rink for Auckland PDF Print E-mail
Read the full feasibility study

15 Mar 2015 – Auckland Curling needs your help to make a submission to Council's 10 Year Plan for a curling rink in our city to become a reality. We need a place to build.

Submissions close at 4pm this Monday 16 March. Read more below to see how to make a submission.

A feasibility study into a combined ice and indoor sports complex on Auckland's North Shore has just been completed. This report was largely funded by an Auckland Council grant to Auckland Curling, acting on behalf of the Harbour Ice and Indoor Sports Stadium group.

The report identifies a way for Auckland Curling to establish a dedicated curling rink in the city with minimum capital outlay, working in conjunction with Council and WCF.

13 Oct 2014 – The Cleansweep side of Chelsea Farley, Thivya Jeyaranjan, Tessa Farley, Ryan Lewis and Eleanor Adviento were rewarded for their consistency when they won the 2014 Auckland Premier League. They beat Liz Matthews' Thistles 7-4 in Sunday's Grand Final.

The result was earned after three top-four finishes for the side in the last 4 years, including topping the preliminary round last year and a runner-up finish in 2010.

It was the best possible end to the domestic season for the Farley sisters, Jeyaranjan and Adviento before they and Waverley Taylor represent their country at next month's Pacific-Asia Curling Championships.

4 Oct 2014 – The Stonehenge side of Garion Long, Ben Frew and Matt Hohaia backed up their 2013 Auckland Under-21 victory when they won the 2014 final against Team Adviento last weekend.

Both sides had beaten Team Sugimara in the round robin to set up the decider. They came into the final on 28 September straight after a club game in the early session at Paradice Avondale.

Team Adviento started the better of the two sides with singles in the first two ends, but a 4 to Stonehenge in the next saw them take a lead that they did not relinquish. The teams shook hands with the scoreline at 7-2.
