The Wilmette Curling Club has been enjoying this great sport since 1968. We were founded by Dar Curtis, who also was instrumental in getting curling started in Japan. Our first ice was in Wilmette as part of the Wilmette Park District facilities in Wilmette, Illinois. We later moved to Skokie when our lease ran out in Wilmette. We now curl as guests at the Exmoor Curling Club in Highland Park, Illinois.
The Wilmette Curling Club usually curls twice a week. We are members of the United States Curling Association (USCA) and the Illinois Curling Association (ICA). The Wilmette Curling Club enters teams in local bonspiels and often participates in state and national playdowns and has participated in the Olympic trials.
