Welcome to the Napanee & District Curling Club. We are a very active club; with over 200 members curling on 4 sheets of ice, 7 days a week starting in October.
Originating in Europe in the 1500's, curling moved to North America in 1807. Napanee curling began in the 1890's on the Napanee River & continued outdoors into the 1920's. Women joined the sport with the formation of the present club, which first curled in the arena from 1957-1960 and in the present facility since 1961. The Napanee & District Curling Club is a not for profit, membership-owned club.
