Due to the COVID-19 situation, the Fergus Curling Club is closing for the remainder of the season.
The Fergus Curling Club was established in 1834 and has operated every year since making it the oldest continuously operating curling club in Ontario.
We are a four sheet club of 260 members. There is a club room, bar, kitchen, and locker rooms. Much of the work around the club is voluntary with the exception of ice-making and caretaking.
The club is managed by a nine person board of directors elected annually from the general membership.
The greatly anticipated ‘New Rocks’ arrived October 23 almost in time for the season openers retiring our 65+ stones.
Carved from Trefor Wales granite, they promise, and of course ‘deliver’, a smoother, faster run with a whole lot of curl.
Icemaker Andy is smiling more and we’re all looking at adjusting our game.
Our club raised the necessary funds in just a month with generous donors, mostly members, stepping up to make it happen.
Better curling, better games - better get out there and give them a try.
We encourage all of our members (and non-members too!) to participate in a fun-filled day of bonspiel-ing!
Please check back to our bonspiel listing throughout the season to find the right spiel for you!
