PLEASE NOTE – This Social League is now filled up
The Martensville Curling Club is excited and ready to start the 2020/2021 season. Memberships are up from last year and the facility is set to follow all COVID-19 procedures.
As a way to introduce new players to their curling club, they have come up with a new league.
“The Social League is a new league our club introduced this year to try to increase our membership and introduce more people to curling,” said Martensville Curling Club secretary Karen Gruza.
“This league is six weeks in duration and will take place once a week. The games are only six ends; as opposed to the usual eight. It offers a chance for people that maybe don’t want to, or can’t commit, to an entire curling season, which is from October to March,” Gruza added. She also noted that it is a great opportunity for people who are new to the sport of curling and want to “give it a try” or just want to have a fun evening out with some friends.
The first session is running from November 3 to December 8, and currently there are six teams entered, with room for two more. “We need to have an even number of teams in order to have each team play once a week,” said Gruza.
The Martensville Curling Club is also looking at running another one or two six-week session after Christmas with dates to be determined.
The Social League will run on Tuesday nights at 8:45pm. The fee is $100/person which includes a complimentary round each week.
