Curling Clubs

CurlingCurling is an ice sport of fitness and finesse enjoyed by thousands of Americans and over 1.5 million people in 35 nations. Men, women, and youth curl for winter recreation and competitive satisfaction that can last a lifetime. No longer a well-kept secret, curling became a full-medal sport at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games at Nagano, Japan.

The heart of curling is local curling clubs and their members. Each club sets up weekly leagues throughout the season, typically October through March. Many curlers also look forward to weekend tournaments - or bonspiels - where they meet people and form fast friendships with curlers from around their region. Camaraderie is also enjoyed off the ice, where curlers absorb the warmth of the clubroom, socializing and recounting their game. The sport is easily affordable and attracts Americans of varying economic backgrounds.

The Sprit Of Curling - "Curlers play to win but never to humble their opponents. A true curler would rather lose than win unfairly...the spirit of the game demands good sportsmanship , kindly feeling, and honorable conduct.
