DUMFRIES will host the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship and World Senior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships in 2014.

All three world championships will take place at the Dumfries Ice Bowl between 22-29 April, 2014. Over 30 senior teams from around the world are 
expected to compete, along 
with a similar number of mixed doubles teams.

“We are delighted to be heading to Dumfries for the World Mixed Doubles and Senior Championships in 2014,” said World Curling Federation president Kate Caithness. “The south-west of Scotland has a long tradition with curling and it is very fitting that these World Curling Federation championship events will be hosted in a region which has produced so many fine curlers.”

It marks the first time that Scotland will host the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship, which began in 2008, although Scotland has previously staged the World Seniors – in 2005 at Greenacres.

The local organising committee will be looking for volunteers to assist with the event. Anyone interested in being involved, please get in contact via info@dumfriescurling.co.uk
