KURLING at Cleckheaton Library is growing in popularity with organisers hoping to make the monthly sessions a more regular event.
The sessions were started last year by Age Concern and the lottery funded Altogether Better scheme, as part of Spen’s over 50s group.
Kurling involves ‘sweeping’ a stone onto a target area and was made popular in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Calgary when Team GB made it to the men’s final.
Library manager Kathryn Parry said: “It’s a great way for people to socialise and get exercise in a fun way.
“People can even play sitting down so if people have health conditions, they can still get involved.
“Everyone can play at their own pace. It’s very popular.”
