RCCC Ladies Branch

The Ladies’ Branch is the name for the network of Ladies’ Centres whose representatives form the Ladies’ Standing Committee (LSC) of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club (RCCC). The remit of the Ladies’ Branch is to:

    foster and encourage the game of curling for women in Scotland;

    promote friendship among women curlers worldwide;

    deal with matters concerning women’s curling as remitted by the Board of the RCCC; and

    act as an effective two way communication channel between women curlers at local and national levels.

Forfar Ladies Centre

The Forfar Ladies Centre is part of this wider network of curlers. We meet together as representatives of ladies and mixed clubs playing out of Forfar to try to achieve the aims listed above. The main focus for Ladies Centre Members is the successful running of four events at local level at Forfar Ice Rink-
