Published October 16, 2023 at 10:45 am

The sport of curling is quickly becoming more and more popular due to its success at the Winter Olympics, and the Brampton Curling Club is giving players of all ages and skill levels a chance to play in their upcoming season.

For those who don’t know, the Brampton Curling Club at 46 McMurchy Avenue South is one of the city’s longest-standing institutions. They’ve been offering a social and welcoming space to curlers since 1880!

Many years later, they’re still committed to sharing their love of curling with as many people as possible.

They’re opening registrations on September 16th for their upcoming season, which begins in October and runs until the end of March. For those who want to check the club out, drop by their free open house on September 30th to try your hand at the sport and see everything the facility has to offer.

Whether you love curling or you’ve never played before, the Brampton Curling Club is one of the best places around to play the game and have a good time with others, for multiple reasons:

The sport is accessible to players of all ages and all skill and fitness levels.

Curling is a team sport in which players compete by taking turns throwing rocks down a sheet of ice guided by their teammates and using brooms to sweep the rock towards its intended target. Points are awarded for accuracy.  Compared to other sports it’s less intensive and more accessible to those of all fitness and exercise levels, while still helping you get active and feel good. The sport can be played by just about anyone, including young kids (the club generally recommends it to kids seven and up), and the atmosphere at the Brampton Curling Club is fun and relaxed, geared towards players who simply want to have a good time.

Not only is the sport accessible, you also don’t have to break the bank to enjoy it – you can either bring your own equipment from home or borrow it from the club, and membership fees are affordable, making it a low investment to try it out.

It’s perfect for playing inside during colder weather.

When winter and cold weather approaches, it’s nice to be able to stay active by enjoying indoor activities. With much of the Brampton Curling Club’s upcoming season largely happening over the winter, it’s the perfect opportunity to still get some good fun and exercise without having to suffer the winter weather. You’ll be surprised at how quickly the winter passes by when you’re having fun!

Tons of fantastic amenities at the facility.

The Brampton Curling Club has been fully designed for comfortable curling in all regards. The facility has six ice sheets for separate games, as well as heated viewing areas, a full bar, and spacious locker rooms with storage for members.

It’s a great way to meet new people and socialize.

As a primarily team-based sport, curling is a great way to meet and play alongside other people in a fun and casual environment. Weekly leagues are arranged for players, which means there’s no need for you to find your own teammates if you’re new to the club. The Brampton Curling Club fosters a community of friendly curlers who play games together and then regularly convene in the bar for drinks and social time.

Opportunities for new and competitive players.

Whether you’re new to the world of curling or you’re an experienced player looking for more of a challenge, the Brampton Curling Club has something for you. That includes an instructional league that offers lessons to new players, followed by game time so they can put what they learned into practice. Additionally, the club organizes weekend bonspiels (curling tournaments) and leagues that change up the teams throughout the year, offering opportunities for curlers to meet more people and test their skill against a variety of other players.

If you’re interested in trying curling or checking out the Brampton Curling Club, then save the date – registrations open September 16th and their open house will be open to all guests on September 30th.

There will also be another open house in March for those who end up missing the fall season.
