About Our Club

The Manotick Curling Center was established as a three sheet facility in 1964, and has enjoyed steady success in the years since. People in Manotick and surrounding communities see the Curling Center as an established focus of community activity. Not only is it an obvious outlet for winter recreational needs, but it is also a place where wedding parties, family celebrations, and charitable events are held on a regular basis.

Some 350 members take part in curling and social activities at the Manotick Curling Center. In addition, the Center is home to a thriving curling program for children and youth, with about 90 enjoying the sport during the current season. New members, both adults and children, are always welcome. The Board of Directors is of the view that the leagues are never full - there is always room for more participants, more energy, and more curling.

Manotick curlers are proud of their casual, non-competitive curling activities, and enjoy an attractive social calendar at the Center too. But more competitive curling is also available, meaning that there is something for everyone at the Manotick Curling Center.

Representatives of the Manotick Curling Center enjoy competitive success outside Manotick, too, regularly bringing home trophies and prizes in men's, women's, mixed, Little Rocks, junior and bantam competitive spiels. Members of the Curling Center are very supportive of these efforts, especially where children are concerned, and encourage their number to participate widely and often.

The Manotick Curling Center is home to some well-known events for non-members, including the Senior Men's Island Spiel (in February), and the Women's Invitational (in late February or early March).

Members of the Manotick Curling Center are proud of their club, devoting many volunteer hours to ensuring the success of the various Curling Center programs. The club president , other members of the Board of Directors, and the rest of the membership hope that you will browse the contents of the Curling Center web site, consider the Manotick Curling Center as a warm, welcoming place for new members, and contact us for additional information.
