Aviva Wheelchair Curling Challenge

The winning Team Lenton

Lockerbie Wheelchair Curling Club applied to the Aviva Community Fund and were awarded a grant to hold a new competition for wheelchair curlers with the aim of promoting the growing sport and encouraging wheelchair users to participate in, and be actively involved in a local community club.

Two teams from Lockerbie welcomed players from Braehead WCC, South Lanarkshire WCC, Stranraer WCC, Northern Ice Wheelchair Curlers, and the Welsh Wheelchair Curling team to take part in a mixture of very competitive games and Hotshot Challenges.

A representative from Aviva presented the prizes (hand made by Mary Bell) to the overall winners from South Lanarkshire WCC and the runners-up from Northern Ice. Lockerbie 1 was awarded the prize for the most points in the Hotshot Challenges and a special award was given to Rebekah Nimmo from Stranraer when she was voted by all the participants to be the ‘Player of the Tournament’.
