New Age Kurling

Posted on: 25/10/2016

What a fantastic and exciting morning at Great Torrington School as we welcomed five junior schools to participate in New Age Kurling! 

For those of you not familiar with New Age Kurling, the game is played by pushing stones comprising of bearings along the ground towards a target with the idea being to get as many of your stones closer to the centre of the target than your opponent's stones.  Today's competition was hosted by Great Torrington School and organised by the North Devon Schools Games Organiser, Mr Adrian Avery.  Today we welcomed five schools: Sticklepath Junior, Great Torrington Bluecoat, Ilfracombe Junior, Woolsery Primary and Woolacombe School.  Each school had a team of four pupils from KS2 and played a round robin of 4 ends.  In total 20 pupils took part with nine GTS Sports Leaders helping to run and organise the games. 

Mr Avery, SGO for the area said, "Thank you to all the pupils that joined us from the North Devon area, it was great to watch your effort, enjoyment of the day and fantastic to see such good sportsmanship in a competitive situation." 

Well done to all involved, including GTS Sports Leaders. A special well done to Woolacombe, Sticklepath, Ilfracombe Juniors, and Torrington Bluecoats, who go on to compete at the Devon Ability Games on Wednesday 16th November.
