Curling is one of the hottest sports in the southeast, and we’re just getting started! As you can see in the map, no matter where you are in the Carolinas, you’re only a few hours away from a curling club. Below the map, you’ll find some details and contact information for our friends in the area – come join us as we grow!
The Triangle Curling Club is the oldest curling club in the southeast, having started in 1996. After curling at a few different rinks in the Triangle area, they found consistent ice time at the Polar Ice House in Wake Forest, just north of downtown Raleigh.
In recent years, the club has been taking steps to build a dedicated curling facility to provide the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas with their curling needs. The new home for the club will be located in the heart of the Triangle at 2310 So-Hi Drive, Durham, NC 27703, and is projected to open in late 2014. Check out their website at http://www.trianglecurling.com for more information about the club and the new facility!
The Coastal Carolina Curling Club brought curling to Wilmington in 2011 and has never looked back! They curl at the Wilmington Ice House at 7201 Ogden Business Lane, Wilmington, NC. As the south’s only coastal curling club, their houses truly do “light the coast”! More information is available at http://www.coastalcurling.com/.
The Palmetto Curling Club has been curling in Greenville, South Carolina since 2010. As the first curling club in South Carolina, Palmetto has done a great job of advertising and bringing the sport to the state. They’ve also partnered with the Charlotte Curling Association in holding the 1712 Cup, a friendly tournament named for the year in which North and South Carolina were split from the former colony of Carolina. For news and information about Palmetto, visit their website at http://palmettocurling.com/.
The Columbia Curling Club, formed in 2014, is the newest member of the Carolina curling community. The club is actively working to find ice time and equipment in order to bring the sport to central South Carolina. More details and information about signing up to help can be found at http://www.columbiacurlingclub.com/.
