French Creek Curling Club's mission is to grow and promote the game of curling in Northwestern Pennsylvania with curling leagues and opportunities to learn to curl at Meadville Area Recreation Complex and at the Flo Fabrizio Ice Center in Erie. Curling from September through March yearly. Our activities are made possible in part through your generous support.
Founded in 2016, a group of enthusiastic curlers and supporters got together with the idea of bringing curling to extreme Northwestern Pennsylvania. It was a natural fit with our long winters, clubs in surrounding cities like Buffalo, Cleveland and Pittsburgh, as well as lots of fun-loving people looking for friendship and activity.
The group included curlers that had been traveling to a club in Cleveland and several supporters from Allegheny College that had spent part of their academic careers in Minnesota and New York where curling clubs had been a part of the culture.
The name "French Creek Curling Club" was chosen as French Creek, with its own long and important history, is a significant geographic feature flowing through parts of Erie, Crawford, Venago, and Mercer Counties in Pennsylvania as well as, Chautauqua County in New York.
