About Us

Curling in Olds goes back almost one hundred years to when the first settlers came to the area in the early twentieth century.

The current facility, located in the Olds Sportsplex, is the third indoor curling rink to have been built in town. The first was built in 1916 on the site which is now the paved parking lot behind Sim’s Furniture Store. It was torn down in 19948 and a new rink was built in the area of the current Sportsplex. The great fire of November 1, 1978 destroyed the curling rink, the ice arena and two grain elevators. The current Sportslpex which we call home was built in 1980.

The Olds Curling Club (1975) has an active membership of over three hundred curlers of all ages. There are six sheets of ice and a licensed lounge. Curling season runs from mid October to the end of March.

Curling leagues
Monday and Wednesday senior leagues (day curling), Monday and Thursday evening men’s league, Tuesday evening and Thursday morning ladies leagues, Wednesday evening mixed league and Wednesday afternoon juniors.
In addition to curling leagues, the Club also rents the ice for casual curling and bonspiels. The lounge can be rented for functions, with or without the bar and kitchen.
