About Our Club

homeThe Fort William Curling Club is a non-profit society that offers 8 sheets of ice for its member community. We host many club leagues as well as partner-sponsored leagues that meet the needs of our varied membership. We have leagues and programs suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced level curlers, and we cater to different age groups as well. From youth development to our seniors, our league menu has something for everyone.

We also host several bonspiels and events throughout the season. Check out our Calendar to learn more! 


The Fort William Curling Club was established in Fort William (now Thunder Bay) on September 18, 1891, on property leased by Peter and John McKellar. It was originally part of the Manitoba Curling Association. The rink was destroyed by fire twice, in 1892 and 1908.

The current facility, with artificial ice, opened on March 10, 1951, as the Fort William Curling and Athletic Club. The club is adjacent to the Fort William Gardens.

about volunteering

As a non-profit society that provides curling experiences for people at all levels, and has hosted numerous provincial and national curling events, we offer a unique opportunity for exposure to our sponsors.

We are pleased to offer various sponsorship levels that include everything from on-ice advertising, to signage and league or event title sponsorship. With our growing membership base, and a host of community, provincial and national events to come in the following years, we look forward to working with you to find an advertising program that is most beneficial for you. 

Learn about our Sponsorship Opportunities.

We are very fortunate to have a team of amazing volunteers who do everything from teaching curling to new curlers, to helping with events and bonspiels. We also have a volunteer Board of Directors who help manage the Club, making it a safe and fun place for everyone to enjoy. Without them we could not do it!

Would you like to become involved? There are many rewards available if you can offer a helping hand.
