First started in 1987, the Kansas City Curling Club enjoyed nearly a 15 year run of actual curling in the Metropolitan Area. They first curled at what was called the Ice Chateau in Overland Park, but this was short lived. Changes in management resulted in the loss of affordable ice time and the club moved to Crown Center Ice Terrace. There, the ice sheet was smaller in size but, in curling outdoors, it gave members a sense of what curling may have been like some 400 years ago. Despite building interest in the club, loss of good ice times plus inconsistent weather made curling unreliable and difficult to build membership. So in 1995, the Club, finding no financial alternatives, simply stopped curling.
In 2003, a few members seeing the recent successes of new clubs in Texas and Florida (due to Olympic Fever?), decided to reconstitute the club. They first arranged for good ice time at a new facility in southern Overland Park, (Pepsi Ice Midwest), then renewed their aged equipment with generous donations within the club and borrowing one set of stones from the Aksarben Curling Club in Omaha, Nebraska.
In 2011 Pepsi Ice Midwest closed, and the club moved to Line Creek Community Center. Here the ice, lighting, sound have proven to be better in many ways and the staff continues to make us feel welcome.
Having finished our 8th season, we have managed each year a Free Open House , 20 week winter season , informal summer curling and a season ending bonspiel (competition between clubs). At the peak of our 2010-2011 season, we had 18 teams worth of curlers in our January league as well as inspired 28 teams to compete in this years bonspiel. We also offer group rentals throughout the year to meet the demand as required. We have even started making plans to bring dedicated ice to Kansas City having recently acquired our 501(c)3 status.
So as we continue to make history, please spread the word about this well-kept secret in Kansas City, so others may take advantage and become a part of our Club's future

$80 for first league / $100 normally for each league. Take a Learn or play a match prior to the league for $10 rather than $20 if you prepay for the league.
Teams can have more than 4 players for the cost of 4 individual rates but only 4 can play each week.
Why curl a league?:
A one-time visit where you either "learn-to-curl" or "play a match"
"Learn to Curl" - *First-timers should choose this* A volunteer club member will show you the fundamentals to sliding a stone and sweeping. This will introduce you to the game, make you comfortable on the ice, and ready to try playing a match your next time out.
"Play a Match" - Having taken our Learn to curl, Play a pickup game or Sub in a League. This is for those who cannot commit to a league but still want to play.
All experience levels welcome, Anyone who can physically play. Curlers are typically 8-80+ years old, men or women alike
Since space is dependant on how many sign up in our league, We list these times one to two weeks advance so check often.
