Surrey’s historical Cloverdale Curling Club has opened it doors and is ready to go for another season of curling. Registration Day – and Night – took place Sept. 7 at the club.

However, registrations can still be done by calling the club or coming on down in person. Just check our website out at cloverdalecurlingclub.ca.

Formerly known as the Valley Curling Club, this is the 67th year of club’s existence. It’s located at 6150 176 Street, on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. Six sheets of the best ice in the Lower Mainland welcomes players of all ages and calibers to the club.

Manager Judy MacKinnon is excited about the upcoming season.

“We have a new website we are instituting this year as well a some changes to some of our program offerings. Our opening Cashspiel beginning this Friday (Sept. 15) and running through to Sunday (Sept. 18) has a full contingent of some of the best male and female teams from the Lower Mainland and beyond. There will also be teams from China, Arizona, Washington State and some of B.C.’s best women’s teams from Vancouver Island – including the defending BC Scotties champions the Thompson rink,” MacKinnon says.

“The novice league allows any players with little to no experience to come out, get a lesson for first half hour and then split into teams and play. This is always very popular with those who are just learning the game and want to start easy. Our popular ‘Drop In’ curling now goes Saturday afternoons from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Again, this is another easy ‘get started’ league with instruction and lots of fun curling.

“There is also a kids program called ‘Little Rocks’ which runs Wednesday afternoons from 4 to 5 p.m. and a full junior league also Wednesdays between 4 and 6 p.m. as well as a whole new junior league being offered Saturdays mornings. We’ll also be running three novice/beginner clinics in mid September open to all. Pre-registration is a must. Call the club.”

Curling is a very social sport by nature. Various bonspiels, both fun and competitive, happen all season long and a fully stocked upper lounge waits after every game. For information or to get curling this year, go to our website – cloverdalecurlingclub.ca – for all the pertinent information, or, call us at 604-574-0420.
