If you’re interested in trying the fun Olympic sport of curling, now’s your chance!
The Cornwall Curling Club would like to help you take that first step – for FREE, with no obligation!!
You’re invited to take part in our Open House, free Adult Curling School, and new members registration. Don’t worry if you missed Tuesday evening, we have new and continuing classes each night.
- Tuesday, October 15
- Wednesday, October 16
- Thursday, October 17
6:30 to 8:30 each evening. Come any one, two, or all three nights – there will be instruction at varying levels each night. New members can register any of these nights.
Registration for new Adult members and new and returning Junior members also goes this evening at the same time.
If you’re attending the curling lessons, dress in warm clothes with loose or stretchy pants and bring clean indoor shoes. Loaner sliders and brushes will be provided. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to start time to ensure you are registered and ready to go. The evening instruction is intended for adults only – younger curlers receive training as part of their ongoing program.
We’ll also tell you why curling is such a great sport, and why you should join our Club! We emphasize the social and recreational aspects of curling, but we have provincial champions, too!
Reasons to take up the sport of curling
Whether you’re a brand new curler, or have years of experience, the Cornwall Curling Club has a spot for you! You don’t have to live in Cornwall to join – we have members from all over Queen’s County.
We offer daytime drop-in curling (underway!) as well as evening single entry and league curling, starting next week, along with fun weekend bonspiels in a social atmosphere.
Curling is a sport that anyone, at almost any age, can play, and includes options for those with varying degrees of mobility impairment. It’s not expensive, in comparison with other sports that require much more equipment, officials, and high registration fees. Cornwall has team (any combination of male and/or female curlers) and individual entry (mixed male and female) draws, Mixed Doubles, and daytime 2-person “stick” curling too. The sport is great exercise, increasing flexibility, and providing cardio, with over 2 miles walked in a typical curling game, and lots of sweeping exercise, too!
Joining a curling club is also a great social activity – allowing you to get together regularly with your friends and coworkers, and make new friends and business contacts. After each game, the two teams involved sit down at the table together, and share a drink or two, with the first “sociable” round, by custom, purchased by the winning team. Weekend bonspiels provide a fun atmosphere for the recreational curler, with great music, off-ice activities, and food thrown in, all for a very reasonable cost (check out our website’s Photo section to see pictures from some of our legendary funspiels!). There are also cashspiels and provincial championships for those who want to take their game up a notch (who knows, you could even be in the Olympics some day!)
Give curling a try – you won’t regret it!
See you on the ice!!
