The Barrie Curling Club is a not-for-profit organization whose vision is to promote and develop a range of curling opportunities for all age groups and abilities, at the same time as being the regional club of choice that attracts curlers in central Simcoe County. Barrie Curling Club serves its members by offering excellent curling ice, a welcoming lounge, quality kitchen service and enjoyable special events. Throughout, the Board of Directors and Management provides effective, frequent and informative communication with its members about activities, events, accomplishments, decisions and plans.
In simpler terms, we are a group of people who love to curl - some more competitively and some more recreationally; and we have leagues and programs to match what our curlers want. Many of us met our best friends (and even better halves) at the Barrie Curling Club and shared some of the best times of our lives at leagues, bonspiels and the lounge.
We have members ranging in age from 5 to 95 and programs and memberships to match everyone's needs.
We have a rich history - our club was founded in 1877 and as such we are one of the oldest sports facilities in the Barrie and Simcoe County. Our club is a not-for-profit organization operated by the members. Visit our club history page for a detailed history of The Barrie Curling Club dating back to 1877.
The Barrie Curling Club hosts a number of such as business gathering, home shows, vendor supply shows, weddings, birthdays, retirement functions, private parties, holiday parties...just about anything you can image from a great facility like ours. Oh...we also host club, private, and corporate curling events and bonspiels where both the ice and lounge are rented.
Most people think the club is only for curling...it's for much more than that!
Our Ice Surface
Barrie Curling Club has seven (7) sheets of ice available for curling with scheduled play from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. Practice times are posted at the Club and are subject to revision. Our sheets are maintained by Dwight Hermiston who has been making ice for more than 30 years. We take pride in the quality of our ice surface and we want to protect the surface that Dwight prepares and maintains.
To this end, we ask regular players and visitors to take care not to damage the ice surface and to report ice issues to our Manager for attention. We ask that bare hands not be left on the ice surface after delivery of a stone, as this can dent the ice surface. Also, if you are leaving the ice between draws to go outside for any reason, please do not wear your curling shoes, as the grit and debris will pit the ice and scour the sliding surface of curling shoes. Prior to going on the ice from the lower lounge, clean your shoes with the shoe cleaners available at each entrance to the sheets.
We have ice feedback forms on to the left of the manager's office. Should you have any inquires or comment on the ice or the rocks, please fill these out so our Manager and Ice Committee may act on them.
We continue to thank and acknowledge our ice maker Dwight Hermiston for his tireless work in providing excellent ice.
