The Turkish Curling Association

According to the Constitution & Rules of the General Directorate of Youth & Sport, curling falls under the umbrella of the Turkish Ice Skating Federation.

In 2009, the Federation joined the World Curling Federation with the approval of the Turkish National Olympic Committee. Since then, an active promotional and development programme for curling has been implemented especially in universities, with seminars and courses organized by the Federation.

The successful performance of the Turkish National Woman’s Team in their first international event carried them to the B group of the European Curling Championship in 2010.

There are approximately 210 licensed curlers in Turkey at present. The goal of the Turkish Curling Association is to increase the number of curling facilities in Turkey.
