Curling in the Berkshires

In recent years, interest in curling has grown across New England. With this increased interest, a number of ice rinks have worked with curling clubs to offer arena curling programs. Instead of constructing a dedicated curling facility, arena curling clubs rent ice from rinks and curl on the rink’s ice. In that past eight years, arena clubs have formed in all five New England states. The arena curling model makes a lot of sense for the Curling Club of the Berkshires. We only needed to find the right ice rink, and we believe that we have done this.

This fall, the Curling Club of the Berkshires will begin curling at the Boys and Girls Club of the Berkshires in Pittsfield. Being able to curl in Pittsfield is an important step for our club and our primary goal of helping people in the Berkshire to learn more about the sport of curling and have an opportunity to curl.

Our first curling open house at the Boys and Girls Club is scheduled for November 4th. If you are interested in attending, please contact us at info@curlberkshires.org .

In the coming weeks, we will provide information about additional opportunities to curl with Curl Berkshires in Pittsfield, as well as at some neighboring clubs. Additionally, if you are interested in curling, we would also like to discuss what your needs might be so that we can see what opportunities might be possible at the Boys and Girls Club.
