Curlers have been sharing some of the tricks of their trade with youngsters in Alexandra over recent days.

Thirty-two children from eight schools took part in the annual Central Otago primary schools curling tournament at Alexandra’s Ice InLine, competing in teams of four.

Organiser Nick Loughnan said the event, in about its 12th year, continued to be popular with school pupils.

“I think I can safely say that it is the only event of its kind in the southern hemisphere”.
