Senior curlers of all skill levels are invited to join the Duncan Seniors Curling Club, which begins play next month. No experience is required.

“It’s more of a friendly thing,” spokesperson Sharol Tomshak said. “It’s not high competition, but there are some good curlers within the teams.”

Curlers don’t have to have a team to register. The club divides all the members up into mixed teams of men and women each season.

“It’s a nice way to get to know people and have some fun, especially for people who are new to the community,” Tomshak said.

The club plays two seasons each year: October to December and January to March, with new teams in each season. Each season wraps up with a windup funspiel and banquet.

Fees are $250 for the entire year, but the club offers lower rates for curlers who want to sign up for just one season.

Game nights are twice a week at the Glen Harper Curling Centre on Sherman Road, although there is the option to curl just once a week

“It’s very flexible,” Tomshak said.

Members of the club range in age up into their late 80s.

“It shows you can still keep curling for years,” Tomshak said.
