A NEW Age Kurling group has been set up thanks to a £250 grant from the Cambuslang and Rutherglen Area Committee.
Pensioners who meet in Eastfield Community Centre each week were looking for a new sport which would allow them to remain active.
They chose New Age Kurling as it is something which everyone can enjoy, regardless of their physical prowess.
The game was originally developed in 2000 and uses small discs with bearings, which are pushed to a target either by hand or with the help of a “pusher”.
Chairman of Eastfield New Age Kurling, Bill Brown, said: “The idea was to get the members of the club involved in something that will allow them to be fitter and healthier.
“We played carpet bowls a lot but the problem we had was the constant bending down and having to roll the carpet away at the end of our time.
“New Age Kurling is much easier to use and can be enjoyed by everyone.”
Chair of Cambuslang and Rutherglen Area Committee, Councillor Pam Clearie, said: “This is something I am certain everyone will be able to enjoy.
“It’s easy to learn how to play and great fun once you get going. I am delighted we were able to offer our support.”
