3/17/2020 – Update
*If you test positive for COVID-19 within 3 weeks of attending an Atlanta Curling Club event, please contact us.
The ACC Board of Directors has been closely monitoring the news about COVID-19 and has been thoughtfully reviewing the recommendations made by CDC and federal and state officials.
As a result, we have decided that Atlanta Curling Club will be suspending all activity until further notice.
The health and safety of our members, guests, and their families is our utmost priority and while we will miss seeing you on the ice, we want to do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Moving forward, the Board has scheduled a meeting to re-evaluate the situation on April 1, 2020 and will provide further information at that time.
While we know everyone would like to get back on the ice as soon as possible, we also want to take the necessary and appropriate precautions to ensure safety and health to all of our members.
Thank you for supporting Atlanta Curling Club and we look forward to seeing you on the ice again soon!
Atlanta Science Festival Attendees: The Atlanta Science Festival has requested that all “hands-on” partner events cancel, so we are complying with their recommendations. If you signed up for the March 13 or March 20 events (or were on the waitlist) and would like to attend a regular learn-to-curl class later in the season, we will honor the ASF pricing. Please contact us at Secretary@AtlantaCurlingClub.com to reschedule. You can check class availability on our Learn to Curl page or ask to be put on a wait list for any particular week.
Learn-to-Curl students: If you signed up for a canceled class, we will refund your purchase or you can reschedule for later in the season. To reschedule, please contact us at Secretary@AtlantaCurlingClub.com
League Members: League is currently suspended until further notice. Please contact us at Leagues@AtlantaCurlingClub.com with any questions or check the Slack channel.
8/19/2017 – Reformation is the 2017 Brewers’ Cup Winner!
Congratulations to Reformation Brewery, the Atlanta Curling Club’s official brewery of the 2017 – 2018 season!
This year, the Atlanta Curling Club held the first annual Brewers’ Cup, a tournament for Atlanta’s craft brewers. The free event, held in partnership with USCA and GNCC celebrating GNCC’s 150th anniversary, was a ton of fun and exposed our beer producing friends to the beer-centric sport of curling. Everyone had a blast and we crushed 5 cases of locally produced beer at Broomstacking.
2017 participants included Reformation Brewery (Woodstock), Blue Tarp Brewing (Decatur), Second Self (Atlanta), Abbey of the Holy Goats (Roswell), Pontoon Brewing (Sandy Springs) and Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta).
Reformation won the grand prize trophy and is our official beer for the 2017 – 2018 curling season. Every broomstacking this year will have a cooler full of Reformation beer that you can try out. You can also visit their Woodstock tap room for a beer and a tour. More information is available on their website.
Reformation Brewery – 500 Arnold Mill Way, STE A, Woodstock, GA 30188
Check out the full event details on the 2017 Brewers’ Cup page.

2013 – PBA 30 Profile of the Atlanta Curling Club
Going back to our roots! Leading into the 2014 Winter Olympic season, Atlanta Public Broadcasting (PBA 30) did a profile of the Atlanta Curling Club on their program This is Atlanta. It’s a wonderful 4 minute documentary featuring one of our founders, Jeff Williams, about how the Atlanta Curling Club was started along with background on the sport.
2010 / 2011 – Atlanta Curling Club is on the Map!
In the February 2011 issue of Curling News, the national publication of US Curling, the Atlanta Curling Club is featured in a front page article titled “Growth Spurt.”
(Original publication – full issue)
The issue also had a second article about the curling camp held in July/August 2010 which is where our founding members learned how to curl for the first time. Check it out!
Jeff puts one on the button at camp:
These photos are from when the founders of the Atlanta Curling Club visited Great Smoky Mountains Curling Club in Knoxville, TN to learn how to conduct a Learn to Curl class. This was also their first opportunity to learn how to curl themselves!
The instructors in Knoxville were most gracious and our members had a lot of fun learning and hanging out with them.
The Atlanta Curling Club owes a great debt of gratitude to our friends in Knoxville; make sure you thank them when you meet one!
