WELCOME THE WORLD
Welcome the World is an initiative of the Stroud Curling Club, Clif Thompson Senior League. The goal of Welcome the World is to give Senior curlers age 50 and older the opportunity to travel, socialize and curl with like-minded individuals around the world. It is a unique curling experience because you enter individually and not as a team and it is not a competition. We merely get together to curl, tour and have some FUN!
Countries currently participating in Welcome the World include Denmark, Scotland, Croatia, the United States, Australia and Canada. Here is a list of past, current and future hosts of Welcome the World:
