The afternoon curlers meet every Monday and Wednesday at 1PM for two hours of recreational curling. Teams are selected from whoever is there and they try to have everyone playing in the position they wish and rotate players so that they get to play different folks each day.
This is a great way to relieve stress and get some exercise!!
For anyone wishing to learn to curl there are some very experienced curlers among the group who would be happy to help get you started.
The “Stick Delivery” method is great for anyone with knee, back or other problems as you don’t have to bend to deliver the stone. Once again we have some good stick players willing to assist with that also.
Through out the curling year the afternoon curlers exchange visits to Digby, Clare, and Barrington for some more great fellowship and friendly competition followed by lunch provided by the host club.
For more information Call Lynn at the Yarmouth Curling Club.

Improving the health of Nova Scotians and making life more affordable for families are two of the government’s top priorities. The government launched Thrive!

Through this program the Yarmouth Curling Club was able to secure some funding to help get the citizens of Yarmouth County more active in the winter months.
“Curling is an easy way to get out and be active in the winter,” says Lynn Doucette, Curling Club Manager. She continues to say, “We encourage people who have never curled before to come out and try it, we provide instruction and encouragement and this program will be done in a fun and non-competitive way”
