Letton Bonspiel

Letton StoneTroon Portland Curling Club is the oldest curling club in Troon and, indeed one of the oldest in the country, dating back to 1830. For many years there was an annual competition between various districts in the village as it was, in the days of outdoor ice.

This competition was resurrected in 2001, with the aim of introducing new members to curling, when one of Troon Portland’s members, Kirsty Letton, donated a new trophy. Kirsty was the winning skip in the World Ladies Seniors Championship at Braehead in 2000 and the oak and laburnum curling stone trophy known as the Letton Stone recognises that achievement.
