Welcome to the Granite Curling Club

Founded in 1961, the Granite Curling Club (GCC) of Seattle is home to curlers of all abilities, including more national champions than any other club in the USA.

The "regular season" is October through March each year, and the "spring season" with reduced activities is April through June; there is no curling in July and August. During the regular and spring seasons, there are many Leagues, Bonspiels (competitions), and Open Houses. You're welcome to come out and participate, compete, or just watch the action.

Update: Repairs to the interior of the building are very nearly complete. The box on sheet 1 will come down on Tuesday! However, sheet 1 will remain unusable for the remainder of the regular season. Our ice crew has scheduled a flood on April 3. Sheet 1 will only be usable after a lot of work, including the flood. We have chosen not to bring the date of the flood forward because it would cause more interruption to leagues - and our league managers have already done a ton of work to rearrange league schedules. Therefore, sheet 1 will not be usable until April 4 at the earliest.
