Welsh Curling Association
Formed in 1974, the Welsh Curling Association is the national governing body for the sport in Wales. Aside from guests, all curlers who play in Wales are members of the WCA, and pay an annual levy towards its upkeep. The WCA are responsible for selecting teams – through national tournament or other means – to represent Wales at international level.
The committee of the WCA consists of a President, Treasurer, Development Officer, Secretary, FPOW President and M/F WCF Representatives. The post of President is elected a year in advance, and so there is also a President Elect.
The current president of the WCA is Laura Beever and the WCF Representative is Lisa Peters.
The fact that all members of the Welsh Curling Association committee have been Deeside players, and so part of the First Province of Wales, is purely down to there being no other permanent locations for curling in Wales. If curling is established at a second rink in Wales, the WCA will be the governing body, and also oversee curling there.
Wales enters teams to several international events including European Men’s, World Mixed, World Mixed Doubles and World Seniors competitions, which are run on an annual basis by the World Curling Federation.
