The rink at Ayr plays host to the Scottish Junior Challenge Division One this weekend. Each junior club is represented by two teams. At least two of the players must be female, one of whom must throw skip, or third, stones.
The clubs competing at Ayr include Gogar, Hamilton, Greenacres, Lockerbie, Stranraer, Perth, Galleon, Forfar, Ayr, Stirling, Dumfries, Aberdeen and Braehead. Gogar fields three sides each of two teams, and Hamilton has two sides. The sixteen sides play in four sections of four with the winners in each section qualifying for semifinals on Sunday.
The results can be found on the Royal Club's website here.
