Welcome to the Cornwall Curling Club, located in Cornwall, Prince Edward Island, Canada! Curling is great exercise and a lot of fun! Our club emphasizes the social and recreational aspects of the game  (although we’ve had Canadian champs and currently a World champion!) and welcomes both new and experienced curlers. Check out the Info section of our website, or call, email or drop in to see what we have to offer, and why we should be your curling club. Note that we have members from all around Queens County, not just the Town of Cornwall, and boast more members than any other PEI curling facility.

USA Ladies Friendship Tour - it (mostly) happened, after all!

Book your holiday party now - prime Fri. and Sat. evenings in Dec. still available!

It's time to plan your office holiday party or holiday get-together with friends. This is a great opportunity to introduce your friends or co-workers to the fun sport of curling and also have food and our bar in the same location -- we can seat around 100 in our clubhouse. You also might also want to rent our ice between Christmas and New Year's, for a family bonspiel or a get-together with friends. Renting one sheet of ice for 8 curlers for two hours is a bargain at  under $10 per person plus tax, and renting several sheets is even more economical.

Buzzer timing change for late draws

Buzzer timing change for late draws

The timing of the buzzer will be changing on the late draws on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings.  Because the games do not always start at 8:30 pm due to the time needed to clean the ice and prepare it for the late draw, the buzzer will now be activated at 10:25 instead of 10:15 pm. When the buzzer goes, we ask you to finish up the end you are on, and then take the rocks back to the home end if necessary. In other words, you have to be in the hack throwing your first rock in your last end by ...
