Information

Our mission

We will promote the sport of curling by providing easier access for people of all ages in our region. We will be developing programs for people with physical and mental challenges. We also plan to enter into partnerships with local school boards and organize tournaments at various levels.

General

The "Curling des Collines" club, which previously operated as "Curling La Pêche", began in 2005 and our goal has always been to promote curling in a friendly environment for our members and visitors. We are committed to help our members learn the rules of the game and then to help them have fun playing the game.

As per the curling tradition, the winning team buys a drink for the losing team.

Social gatherings
include dinners, funspiels, a Christmas party, an end-of-season activity and a fundraising golf tournament.

You can refer to our pamphlet for more information.

We consider that we provide a congenial atmosphere, especially since our members come from every corner of the region to curl together.

RCMP Curling Centre

We currently curl at the RCMP Curling Centre in Ottawa. Games are played on Wednesdays between 9:30 AM and 1:30 PM and on Fridays from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. If you are interested, please contact us and we will be more than happy to welcome you on board.

  • Cafeteria: There is no cafeteria service but the bar is open. You can bring your lunch or order delivery on site.
  • Speed of play: As there is no downtime between games, the play must proceed at a good pace to allow for eight ends. There will be a buzzer at 25 minutes before the end of the game. You can decide amongst yourselves if can complete all eight ends, keeping in mind that it takes approximately 15 minutes to play one end.
  • Equipment: Sliders, brooms and delivery sticks will be available at this centre.
  • Address for the RCMP Curling Centre: 115 St-Laurent Blvd, Ottawa, Ont.

Crests with the "Curling des Collines" logo

We ordered some crests which bear the "Curling des Collines" logo. The crest size is approximately 4.25 inches x 3.5 inches and is large enough to replace the former logo. If you would like to have one or more, please confirm your order with Mike Duern.
