Who are We
Windy City Curling Club is a strong group of individuals that all share a common interest: curling! We have some members who show up every week simply to spend a few hours on the ice, others who enjoy heading to other clubs to play in bonspiels (curling tournaments), and even a small number of us who hold the deepest passion for the sport that it’s pretty much all we think about. Regardless of skill level, the one thing we mostly look for is simply to have a good time with friends and family.

Why Join Us?
We are a young club
We may be a young club, but with youth comes enthusiasm. We have a bright-eyed excitement about future expansion, bringing in new members, and enjoying the sport for what it is, a game.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit
We are a 100% volunteer based 501(c)3 non-profit that is operated and funded by our members and our activities. We are now starting our third year and would love to have you help us build the club and our community!
It is a life-long sport
When it comes to curling, age is only a number. What matters more is experience. Our club has a vast mix of age ranges all playing together. It truly is one of the only sports where a twenty-something in top physical shape can hold very little advantage over a senior with years of experience.
It is a sport your spouse can play
Studies have proven that when couples share common interests, they tend to stay together longer and are happier. Why not share one night a week (and maybe a couple bonspiels) with the one you love?
We like to have fun
Above all, we love the sport and want to have fun. Come share in our passion and find out why curling is a growing sport in America year after year!
Crazy clothing is part of the game
