New Age Kurling is a form of the original curling game played on ice, adapted so that it can be played indoors on any smooth, flat surface, with the players delivering stones from one end of a court to a target at the other end of the court.
The target has red, white, and blue concentric circles and scoring is determined by the number of stones closest to the centre of the target. Each team has a set number of stones and take it in turns to slide a stone towards the target. Each game will normally consist of an even number of ends, usually six or eight.
Players are permitted to move the stones with their hands, feet, pushrod, or using a ramp – this means New Age Kurling is truly a game to be played and enjoyed by all!
Positively Impact your Mental Health With Sport
Even short bursts of regular exercise have a proven positive impact on mental health. This is why joining us for Walking Football could be the first step to better mental health for you. Here are just a few ways in which sports and physical activity can positively impact your mental health.
Improve your Mood: Exercise releases feel-good hormones, which tell your brain to improve your mood. Recent studies showed that people who categorised themselves as feeling low noted a significant improvement in mood after they undertook physical activity.
Reduce Stress: People who partake in regular physical activity often have lower stress levels.
Increase Self-Esteem: Exercise can often help you to feel better about yourself.
Tackle Depression and Anxiety: GPs often prescribe regular exercise as part of a Mental Health programme to help sufferers of Depression and Anxiety. Taking part in regular activity and sport empowers individuals to self-manage their recovery.
Sleep Better: Physical Activity will help to tire you out during the day and therefore help you to get a better night's sleep.
Connect with new people: Sporting activities allow connecting with like-minded new people, without the pressure of finding a common ground.
