2020 Update – Need New Leaders for Monadnock Curling Club – interested?

Would YOU be interested in taking on the leadership of bringing curling to the Monadnock region of New Hampshire? If so, please email me at monadnockcurling@gmail.com

You may have noticed the lack of updates on this site. There’s a reason. A lot changed since Matt and I began this project back in 2013 – and our lives have taken us away from the Monadnock region. Matt and his wife moved out of New Hampshire. And in the summer of 2018, my family moved to the Burlington, Vermont, area. Prior to that, I had been caught up in the world of competitive junior curling with my oldest daughter for the past several years, and all my volunteer time had been consumed by that effort.

I still think it would be great if someone could bring curling to the Monadnock region. If anyone is interested in picking up this work, I would be glad to transfer this website (it’s based on WordPress), the domain name, social media channels, email account, etc. There is also a very small list of people who expressed interest in getting involved.

Please email me at monadnockcurling@gmail.com if you are interested.

Meanwhile, if you are looking for curling in the Monadnock region, either to learn the sport, to participate in leagues, or to rent ice for an organization / corporate event, I strongly suggest you check out the Petersham Curling Club (PCC), about 45 minutes south of Keene, NH, in Petersham, MA. They are a great group of people that are very welcoming to all who are interested!

If you are looking for curling in the state of New Hampshire, I am only aware of these clubs:

There are a couple of other clubs in Massachusetts and Vermont that may work for some people in New Hampshire. Please see our list of other clubs.

Try Curling at Petersham

Try curling this weekend (Feb 17-18) at Petersham Curling Club and next week (Feb 19-24)

Want to try out curling?  The Petersham Curling Club (PCC) is offering multiple opportunities over the next week.  This weekend (Feb 17-18) there are two free “Olympic Open House” events:

  • Saturday, February 17, between 1:00 – 5:00pm
  • Sunday, February 18, between 1:00 – 5:00pm

You will learn the basics of the sport and get a chance to try it out on the ice.

However… pre-registration is completely SOLD OUT! There will be limited walk-in spaces available, so you can still head down and check it out, but you may have to wait a bit.

PCC is about 45 minutes south of Keene, NH, in Petersham, MA. More info can be found on the club’s website.

Another option is to pay for a Learn to Curl session on February 19, 20, 21 or 24.  In these sessions you will get to learn all about the sport and get a chance to get out on the ice and learn how to play.

SPACES ARE FILLING UP FAST for the Learn to Curl sessions – so sign up on the PCC Learn to Curl page if you want to join in.

And if you would like to help us bring curling to the Monadnock region, please fill out this form to let us know you are interested!
