Long Description:
Ashcroft Curling Club

The Ashcroft Curling Club was formed in 1896 by a small group of enthusiastic curlers. The first curling games were held in an outside rink.

Located immediately adjacent to the Drylands Arena, the Curling Club building is owned by the Village of Ashcroft, but operated by the Ashcroft and District Curling Club. There are four sheets of ice with season beginning

in mid-October and continues through early March. The curling club offers adult league curling, senior league curling and junior league curling.

Throughout the season, the curling club plays host to many different fun-filled bonspiels and spectators can enjoy watching the sport from the upstairs licensed lounge or downstairs at the ice level. There is a concession that is operated during the bonspiels.

The Curling mural covers most of the back south wall of the building. The mural shows a group of men, some with straw brooms in hand, contemplating the next shot. The mural was assisted by the Ashcroft Secondary School with about a dozen names of the students across the bottom of the mural.
