Winnipeg to host ’23 national club curling championships

The country’s best club curlers will gather in just over a year’s time in Winnipeg for the Canadian championships.

The 2023 Canadian Curling Club Championships are set for Nov. 19-25, 2023 at Assiniboine Memorial. The event features 14 men’s and women’s teams representing 10 provinces, three territories and northern Ontario.

It’s for recreational, club-level curlers who don’t have the time or resources to compete at the high-performance level, but would relish the special opportunity to represent their region and vie for a national title.

This year’s championships are set for the West Edmonton Mall Ice Palace, Nov. 20-26.
