It gives me great pleasure to welcome all competitors, officials, friends, families and supporters to the City of Perth for the inaugural EDF Energy City of Perth Ladies International.

I am delighted to say we have had a great response for the first year, with 20 teams entered into the championship. I would like to give a very special welcome to all the teams competing this year – Canada, Sweden, England, Japan, Norway Russia Switzerland, Germany and of course Team Scotland.

Perth and Kinross has great historic links with Curling. The traditional start to each year is the Mercure City of Perth Masters, and with its large delegation of overseas players and supporters, it truly gives Perth an international start to the year. We hope that the EDF Energy City of Perth Ladies International is a great success and becomes established as part of the annual curling calendar, alongside the prestigious Mercure City of Perth Masters.

I would like to extend you all my best wishes for an enjoyable weekend here in the Fair City and I wish all competitors every success – may the best team win!
