Granite Curling Club

Enlarge text:  smaller  |  larger

The popularity of curling as one of Winnipeg’s earliest team sports gave birth to the city’s first curling club. The province’s Scottish population were the city’s early curling enthusiasts, playing informal matches in improvised facilities with makeshift equipment.

The club was organized in 1880, with its first season of play in 1881. An indoor rink was built in 1892 at Hargrave Street and Ellice Avenue. By 1911, larger facilities were needed and the Mostyn Place site, with handy access to the Assiniboine River's water for ice-making, was selected.
