WCF, Curling Canada, and the Cornwall Curling Club adopt Five Rock Rule this season

The World Curling Federation and Curling Canada have both implemented the five-rock free-guard zone (FGZ) rule this season, replacing the four-rock rule that had been in effect. The Cornwall Curling Club will, of course, be adopting the revised rule, as any provincial or other championship under Curling Canada's guidance will be using it, and it wouldn't make much sense to play under different rules at a club. The expanded rule means that the first five rocks thrown each end (normally the two rocks thrown by each lead and the first rock thrown by the second on the team without last ...

We welcome new members, from those who have never curled before, to experienced curlers who are looking to join our vibrant Club here in our modern facility at the Cornwall Civic Centre.

Stick Curling 

We are PEI’s most active Stick Curling facility, and have even hosted and won the Canadian Championship. In fact, we’re hosting the Maritime and the Canadian Stick Championships this season! Stick curling is a two-person sport, with similarities to Mixed Doubles, and can be played by anyone, including those with mobility challenges, as you use a delivery stick from a standing position instead of a traditional hack delivery. We have even had wheelchair curlers play in Stick events here – our facility is accessible right down to the ice level. Stick curling goes weekday afternoons except for Wednesday, from 12:30 to 2:30. Stick curlers are also welcome to participate in our regular leagues and bonspiels.

Info on Registration, Rates, etc. 

Check our News Posts for the latest information on Registration, including our new Online Registration and Payment System, our low Membership Rates (hint: they’re unchanged from last year!), our schedule of Bonspiels and Events, our Commercial League, our Board of  Directors and Executive, and more details on our Curling Lessons.

Stick with us, and find out why we should be your curling club! And, if you’re a returning member, welcome back! 

We have 4 sheets of Jet Ice, a club house and ice plant (with backup power generator) that were completely replaced in the 2010/2011 season, an Ice King scraper bought new in 2012, ice-house heating and dehumidification, and are wheelchair accessible right down to the ice surface. We have a well-stocked Pro Shop and bar, and access to upstairs banquet facilities.
