Tårnby Curling Rink

 
 

Two different clubs use the curling rink. They are Tårnby Curling Club and Margarita Curling Club Denmark.

The rink was built in 2000 and was officially opened on the 1st of April. The rink consists of 5 lanes which are constantly maintained by the ice crew. By mid August 2011 the curling rink will be extended with 2 extra sheets and with its 7 sheets of ice, the rink will be the biggest curling rink in Denmark.

Tårnby Curling Club and Margarita Curling Club Denmark have over 330 members, which makes them the biggest club in Denmark. TCC has been active since 1978 and has won many Danish Championships and International Games. The Club has through the years had many successful teams that have won many Danish National Championships and International tournaments along with good results at the European Curling Championships, European Mixed Championship, World Women's Curling Championship, World Senior Curling Championships, World Junior Curling Championships, European Junior Curling Challenge & Olympic Winter Games.


The Rink of TCC and MCC is one of the world’s most modern installations, with a lot of technical advantages built in with technical assistance provided by Leif Öhman from Sweden. The Control Room with the aid of computers handle all the many different temperature readings that are supplied by sensors that have been installed under the ice, in the subsoil and in other places around the rink as well.

With the new upcoming extension of the rink, it is our intention to make the new facilities even better and more high-tech for the curlers at TCC and MCC Denmark.
Teams from around the world have already been using the rink on many occasions as preparation for World Championships, Juniors and Seniors. Hopefully this will continue in the future as it is the club’s philosophy and aim to help curling teams and curling nations from all over the world develop at all levels of this Olympic Sport.
The curling rink is not just a curling rink, in the autumn of 2003 a new building was built to join the existing one. This building has a lift installed to allow better access for wheelchair-curlers, a workout/fitness room and other facilities.
