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.
