“We are delighted to be heading to Dumfries for the World Mixed Doubles and Senior Curling Championships in 2014.
“The South-West of Scotland has a long tradition with curling and it is very fitting that these World Curling Federation championship events will be hosted in a region which has produced so many fine curlers."
