Early Curling History

Early Curling History

Curling made its first appearance in northwestern Ontario in the late 1870s with matches being carried out on the frozen lakes, rivers and ponds of the region until local residents organized clubs. The oldest reported curling club in the region is the Port Arthur Curling Club, which opened in January of 1888. The Rat Portage Curling Club was formed in September of 1889 and the Fort William Curling Club was officially formed in 1891, with a rink constructed in 1892.
