The 'Adopt-a-Team' Initiative


This is an informal way to encourage the local curling clubs that play at Braehead (and perhaps elsewhere?) to take an interest in the Glynhill Ladies International by sponsoring the event and for which they receive a randomly selected team to support during the competition.

The scheme has been in operation for the last three years and has gradually become a welcome addition to the friendly and inclusive atmosphere of the event. The clubs have become more familiar with their adopted team(s) and the teams receive encouragement from the club members that come along to watch.

A feature of ‘adoption’ has been the opportunity to meet the teams at the rink and an increasing number of clubs have exchanged gifts and had souvenir photographs taken for club archives. It is hoped that this personal touch will remain an established feature of the event.

The additional support is very much appreciated by the teams and it contributes to the overall positive impression left by the event. Many have returned year after year and mention the 'wee things' that make the Glynhill stand out in the calendar.

Here is a run down of the Teams and their adoptive Clubs.
