Curling Since 1976
The Gibsons Curling Club opened it's doors in 1976 on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia. The club is a non-profit society, open to anyone and everyone. It does not operate as a private club; rather it strives to keep playing fees as low as possible to encourage curlers, young, old, new or experienced from all walks of life.
The Club could not function without the help of volunteers. They are essential to run all the programs and events held by the Club throughout the year and to keep fees low. Volunteering is a gratifying experience and you will meet many other great people.
