Kurling is an inclusive sport, and can be played from a seated or standing position, with the aid of a pusher head and is enjoyed by all ages, but most popular with Older Adults.
It is a target game consisting of 4 blue Kurling stones, 4 red kurling stones and a target mat; the aim is for the players to try and get their kurling stones closest to the centre target; closest to the target once all the stones are thrown, wins the point.
Donegal Sports Partnership have been coordinating a recreational games league since 2014, with 7 Active Retirement groups in the East of the County. With over 120 men & women involved, games are played weekly over 12 consecutive weeks, twice a year. Each team plays each other twice, once at home, once away and they adjudicate their own games. With a huge emphasis on social interaction and fun, the home team always provides the cup of tea after!!
If you are part of a group and would like to organise a Kurling taster session, or have any queries in relation to Kurling or the Active Seniors programme, please get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
