A Short Intro to Curling

About Armstrong & District Curling Club

The Armstrong & District Curling Club is located at 3315 Pleasant Valley Road, within the IPE fairgrounds and just behind Centennial Hall, so we have lots of space for parking! We have been at this location since 1967 and our building has been through several upgrades and renovations over the years resulting in a modern and comfortable lounge, expanded kitchen and 3 sheet rink. Our active membership base is between 225 and 250 each year with evening leagues, day leagues for seniors 50+,  and a focused Learn To Curl program. We have certified trained coaches who can provide instruction and welcome new curlers of any age. If you have joint problems or mobility issues and can’t deliver your rocks “out of the hack” as you see on television, we can show you how to deliver rocks using a “stick”, in which you stay standing and walk out to the release line. After having fun on the ice we invite you to join your teammates upstairs to the lounge for a great social experience! That is what curling is all about!

History

In 2017 the Armstrong & District Curling Club celebrated 120 years of curling in Armstrong with a 3 day historical Homecoming Event.  In 1897 some enterprising men got together and formed a curling club, making use of different barns and warehouses until 1930 when a 2 sheet rink was built on Patterson, near the Blue Hotel.  This was our home until 1967 when our present 3 sheet rink was built, with renovations occurring in 1975, the late 1990’s and again in 2016. We have an active membership ranging between 225 to 250.   Although our club is steeped in history we are leaping into the next century and attracting new generations to the fun sport of curling!
