In 1960 a number of Uxbridge area curlers, who had been curling in Sunderland, decided that Uxbridge should have a curling club of its own. Harvey Acton, Murray Taylor and Earl Harman held the first Uxbridge and District Curling Club meeting in the Uxbridge Fire Hall. Committees were formed to select a site and to raise money for the building fund. Elgin Park was first considered as a site but was eventually rejected as it would reduce the much-needed space for the annual Fall Fair. It was decided that since the original hockey arena on Marietta Street did not have an artificial ice plant, it would be most economical to locate the new curling club next to the arena and share the cost of the ice plant.
- The first sets of curling stones were purchased in Regina for $70 per pair
- The cost of the building and the club was $89,000
- The club opened its doors to over 180 members on November 16, 1960
- The club is owned and operated by its members
- The club is run by volunteers! Please consider volunteering your time - ask any executive member about the possibilities. We always need assistance!
The club consists of 4 sheets of ice for all level of curlers and leagues, including men's, women's, mixed, youth, and day and evening schedules.
