We currently have 22 teams that play in three divisions, with teams sorted by skill level.
Every year we have up to a dozen people join us who are brand new to the game. The first week of the season is always an instructional clinic for new curlers and a "funspiel" for those who already know the basics.
We can always use more people for our spare list, either novices who
want to learn the game or experienced curlers looking for an extra game.
We play at the historic Granite Curling Club
in downtown Winnipeg. The Granite was founded in 1880. In 1912 the
present facilities were erected on Mostyn Place (now Granite Way). It
is the oldest curling club still in continuous existence in Manitoba.
The club has 9 sheets of ice, and blends modern equipment with turn of
the century heritage.
Every February we host the Bison Cup Bonspiel that attracts teams from across the country. In 2016 we hosted the Canadian Gay Curling Championships.
An article about Canada's gay curling leagues has been published in the New York Times.
"In Winnipeg, Manitoba, players have dressed as characters from “The Golden Girls” and “The Wizard of Oz.”"
Are you a new curler?Are you new to skipping?Do you want to improve your delivery?Do you want to learn more about strategy?
The league has a certified curling instructor available for on-ice sessions or off-ice discussions about the delivery, sweeping, strategy, rules, and etiquette.
Congratulations to Team Thompson (Vancouver 2), 2016 Canadian Gay Curling Champions!
