Day Curling League

Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:30

Come when you can. There's no commitment to find a spare when you are busy or away. It’s a great place to learn to curl, to work on your curling skills, and to learn how to stick curl.

We also have one-day home/away tournaments with other clubs where we regularly get trounced but have a good time and a good meal! And we have several fun in-house bonspiels/pot lucks during the season.

Open to all members, and to non-members on a limited basis

Daytime Drop-in curling is open to all members, on a first come, first served basis. Non-members are welcome if space is available after members have been assigned to teams. Non-members can curl as our guest the first time and then we ask you to join the club as a social member ($50, with an opportunity to curl 3 more times) or as a full member of the club.

  • Curling starts at 9:30 am.  Please arrive a minimum of 15 minutes early to allow time to make up teams
  • Games are eight ends with a break for refreshments after four ends
  • Teams are mixed, with any combination of male and female curlers
  • Adult curlers only
  • We have a kitty to collect small contributions (generally a quarter) to cover the cost of refreshments (coffee and tea, supplies).
  • If you love to bake, we have a sign up schedule for home cooked goodies but you are under no obligation to bring anything
  • If schools in the area (South Shore Regional School Board) are closed due to bad weather on a curling day, daytime curling will be cancelled.
