Charleswood Senior Mixed Curling League
The Charleswood Senior Mixed Curling League has been in operation since 1970, using the facilities of the Charleswood Curling Club. Originally we were a social club offering activities such as carpet bowling, bridge, cribbage, and a senior’s choir… in addition to curling.
Over the years, interest in activities other than curling has diminished, so now we are primarily a mixed curling club. It is important to note that we have no minimum age requirement. We have several players who are younger than the traditional age limit for senior curling. We encourage anyone who has limited or no curling background to join. Training and coaching is provided.
We still stress the word “social.” The league offers mixed recreational, fun curling with no prizes/trophies, etc. – just good fun and good fellowship for curlers of all levels. Players enter as individuals, not teams. Four times a year the teams are reorganized to optimize the social aspect, thereby allowing everyone to get to know one another. Generally, curlers play at the position they choose.
Monday and Friday mornings at 9:30 AM starting mid-October and finishing mid-March. We curl four nine-game quarters. The first two quarters are usually completed before Christmas.
For curlers who are not able to commit to a full season, we do accept registration for less than a full season. Preference is given to full-season registrants although every effort will be made to accommodate all registrants.
We also welcome curlers who wish to spare in our league. The spare fee is $5.00 per game, payable when you curl.
For more information please contact: Iris Clairmont at 204 895-1124
Food coupons are mandatory for all curlers (spares are exempt). To ensure quality and viable food/canteen service the Charleswood Curling Club executive requires all curlers to purchase a $25 book of food coupons. These coupons are redeemable for food and drink at the canteen. The caterer is a vital part of the curling club. We thank you in advance for your support.

Although primarily a curling league, we do hold a Christmas luncheon which is very popular with our members. A gift exchange is part of the fun and adds to the camaraderie.
We have also hosted a spring golf outing for our members for the last few years. A most enjoyable day for all who attend.
