WATCH: World Junior Curling Championships get underway in Aberdeen

The World Junior Curling championships are underway in Aberdeen today.

It’s the sixth time Scotland has hosted the competition but the first for the Granite City.

Ten teams will compete during the week-long event at Curl Aberdeen including last years men’s champions South Korea and women’s champions Sweden.

Scottish women take on Norway in the championships first match.

By its very nature, the World Junior Curling Championships is a gateway for future international careers and will see several individuals and teams will be making their championship debuts at this event.

Tom Brewster, facilities manager at Curl Aberdeen who won silver at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, reckons the spectators are in for a treat.

“It is going to be a great event and the venue is looking great.

“It is nice timing for an event like this as it comes so soon after the Winter Olympics.

He added: “We also have the Scotland women’s team led by Rebecca Morrison, who is local and a member of this rink.

“We have got 300 seats available and we have sold 100 week passes and quite a few days passes so hopefully there will be some good crowds.”
