Contemporary Club Competitions

The modern club competitions began to evolve following more regular participation by members in inter-club competitions at Haymarket Ice Rink in Edinburgh, in the first half of the twentieth century.  More convenient transport opportunities providing quicker access were probably also a key factor.

The first of the enduring contemporary club competitions to be introduced was the Rink League, which commenced in the 1955-56 season.  This league is now more commonly known as the Kettle League.

As the club expanded in the 1970’s, more and more ice was sought and a variety of events were trialled.  A Club Pairs competition, with a knock-out format, was introduced in the 1976-77 season.   A Thirds League was established in the 1994-95 to promote development opportunities for players.  By the early stages of the twenty-first century (2001-02), a Singles Knock-out competition was launched for enthusiastic members keen to test their mettle in individual contest.  Finally, following a review of club competitions by the Committee in 2009, an annual Club Knock-out competition was initiated in the 2010-11 season.
