• Wednesday daytime – Drop in League – 1pm (sign up for individual games, a portion of the season, or the whole season. You do not have to enter as a team).
• Thursday night – Open League 6:45pm & 9pm

The Social League is for people that can’t or don’t want to commit for an entire curling season (October – March) or are new to the sport of curling and want to get out for a fun night with friends. It runs for six weeks with games being six ends instead of the typical 8 or 10. The cost for this league is $100/person.

The Curling Club will also be hosting some events this year featuring many well-known competitive curlers. The most anticipated event is happening this week from September 1 – 5 with the 2022 Men’s and Women’s International. A total of 22 teams will be featured, with 12 women’s teams and 10 men’s teams participating, which include Olympic gold medalist Jennifer Jones, 3x World Champion Silvana Tirinzoni of Switzerland, and many other Canadian favorites such as Mike McEwen and John Epping.

Saskatchewan will also have strong representation at this event with teams including Steve Laycock, Ashley Howard, Colton Flasch, Nancy Martin, Kody Hartung, Dallan Muyres, along with many more participating.

The draw for this event is now available at curlingzone.com, as well as below. You can watch it in person at Martensville Curling Club or Live on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/user/CurlingZone. Event passes can be purchased by contacting curlingstadiumsask@gmail.com. Full event passes are available for $40, day passes for $10 and last draw of the day for $5.

Other upcoming September events at the Martensville Curling Club include; Sask Tour Mixed Doubles, Junior Slam Series – Sask Cup #1, and CurlSask U15 Bonspiel. All events are coordinated by Curling Stadium Saskatchewan.

Advertising help bring events like this to the community when you purchase commercial airtime on their streams. Commercial revenue helps offset the costs of streaming and venue costs associated with running these events. Spaces are still available for businesses that are interested in advertising through the live stream of the events, which will be available to view for free via YouTube.

“We are asking $20 for 30 second commercials, and pricing is based on our projection of over 1,000 active viewers during the games. If the active viewers are less, we will run more commercials to make up the difference,” said James Gordon, event organizer and co-manager of Curling Stadium Saskatchewan.
