The Club is only open for curling when the pond is naturally frozen – it needs to be at least -3° for a few days before it will freeze enough for curling.
Carr-Bridge is one of the few clubs which plays regularly outdoors. The Inverness-shire village lies a few miles north of Aviemore and has one of the best frost records in Scotland. The club is fortunate to have a purpose-built pond complete with floodlights. In the past, it depended on rain to fill the pond, and even with severe weather were sometimes unable to play due to lack of water. Now the Club has installed its own water supply, so only needs frost, and playing is possible.
Visitors are welcome to the club, stones are provided and the club hut has a lovely hot pot bellied stove to keep you warm between turns. There is a charge to play.
