New Kurling Club for Older People in Ringwood

A new indoor kurling club for older people was launched on Wednesday 14th January at the Greyfriars Community Centre in Ringwood. The club, operated by Hampshire-based charity Brendoncare, will meet every Wednesday from 1.30pm to 3pm, and is open to both men and women.

Club locality manager Catherine Fellingham says: “We are delighted to be opening this new kurling group in Ringwood. Kurling is great, because it can be played indoors, so it doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside. It’s mildly competitive, fun and involves moderate exercise. We know from experience that people live happier and more fulfilled lives if they are able to enjoy the companionship of like-minded people, stay mentally and physically active, and mix with friends, so we hope lots of people from Ringwood will come along and join in.”

Brendoncare’s clubs are devoted to giving older people the opportunity to meet new friends and have some fun, with over 70 clubs across Hampshire and Dorset. The clubs rely on the generosity of volunteers who donate their time to help reduce social isolation and loneliness among older people.

To find out more about kurling, or if you are interested in joining the new Ringwood club as either a member or a volunteer, please call Catherine on 07467 955863.
