Club Friendlies

A few weekends each season, Traverse City Curling Club is invited to attend a “Friendly,” where we match up against teams from another club or we host the matches at Centre Ice for a hometown Friendly. Friendlies give you a bonspiel-like experience in one day. Curling 2 or 3 matches, generally against more experienced curlers on dedicated ice – it’s a great way to improve your skills, appreciate more nuances of the game, and enjoy the company of other curlers!  They are called “Friendlies” for a reason…

Prices vary but typically include lunch, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks (please drink responsibly!). Registration is for members only and per individual, so if you have a friend or a team, please register all participants at the same time to guarantee your spots. Individual registrants will be assigned teams. Please note that registrants are required to find a replacement curler if they are unable to attend the day of the event. Carpooling is often coordinated.
