Sporting events – Kurling news
New Age Kurling
This was Round 4 of the Omnes Games, held once again at LynnSport on Friday 25th March.
A team of 6 attended the event from 5/6s, similarly to the actual game 4 play at any one time and you aim for a target to score points although points weren’t counted. There were 8 other schools; Denver, Flitcham, Holy Cross, Nelson Academy, South Wootton, North Wootton, Southery and Whitefriars which we played in rounds and we rotated our players after each game.
It was a relatively new sport and deceptively difficult, knowing exactly how hard to actually push the stone. The Southery teacher and I had a go and yes, getting it just right was very difficult.
The children remarked on how good it was to try something a bit different, though a little frustrating at times.
Another super experience!
