Posted: Fri, 07 Sep 2012 13:47
Thirteen teams from accross Leicestershire enjoyed a whole morning of Kurling at Parklands Leisure centre, competing in the second Leicester-Shire and Rutland Sport County trophy.
Representatives of districts came from Blaby, Charnwood, Melton and Oadby and Wigston. Six courts were used, kindly provided free of charge by Parklands Leisure Centre.
Once the rules had been establised, all teams competed in a minimum of 5 group games, establishing their position for the final knockout rounds. A mixture of new and old kurling kits, new bearings and an unfamiliar floor to most, proved to be challenging for the teams, however made the competition exciting.
Once the group stages were over and a quick refreshment break, the knockout stages began. the four teams competing for the cup consisted of 2 teams from Oadby and 2 from Melton.
The eventual winners of each competition were as follows:
Winners of the County Kurling Trophy: Bob's Babes - Oadby

Winners of the Chocolate Prize: Enderby Eagles - Blaby
- Phil Marsden, Jean Marsden, Enid Kirkpatrick, Phil Loseby
