Located at 22 Lansdowne Street in the town of Sackville, New Brunswick, the club caters to all ages and levels of interest. With a variety of leagues and levels of competition, as well as a variety of curling and social activities, we're sure to have something for everyone from the complete beginner to national competitor.
There were curlers in Sackville as early as 1901 and Sackville Curling Club was incorporated in 1949. We have three sheets of ice, a bar, a function room, and a kitchen.
We have leagues for mens', ladies' and mixed curling. As well there are programs for junior curlers and for little rocks. The year 2016/17 saw the start of a new league for mixed doubles.
In 2019/2020 season we started a six week Learn to Curl program in the fall with the Rookie League as a follow up for our graduates.
The McLellan Cup was first contested as a trophy for an inter-provincial bonspiel between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Moncton in 1887. The cup was a gift from David McLellan, who at the time was a member of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick.
We are sending along a brief update to address questions that have come up regarding our new curling stones.
At present, we have been curling with the new stones since the first of the year. You have likely noticed that only some of the stones have new, inscribed handles. When purchasing the stones, we purchased all new handles. We still have rocks available to be sponsored and inscribed, so, rather than shipping handles here and then back for inscription, we left them with the company until we are ready to complete the order.
Stones are still available to be sponsored and inscribed at a cost of $600.00. We hope to have another ten to twelve sponsors which would complete two full sheets. The Board, in consultation with the members, will make a decision about the stones on the third sheet and how, if and when they will be inscribed.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors along with grants from the Town and Province our stones are now paid for. Some of the funds used to complete the purchase were from club funds held in reserve for contingencies, emergencies and future planning. It is these funds that we hope to replace with the final sponsorships.
There are a number of our original handles that continue to have significance to the club and members and the old handles will not be destroyed. We hope to have these displayed in a prominent location in the future or there may be another better way to hang on to these. If you have some thoughts or feedback on these handles as a group or, individual handles that you feel have special significance, please bring this to the attention of a board member.
Members will be informed of final decisions regarding the old handles and the new handles for sheet 3.
For those still interested in sponsoring a stone, or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to a Board Member. Thank you again to those who have supported the Rock Replacement Campaign.

The club executive decided to finish the season early this year in order to help the reduce the rapid spread of the coronavirus and to protect all of our club members.
About half of our Rookie Curling League were able to participate in the last game of the season on Sunday March 15.
We hope that all our members stay safe and healthy as we look forward to our 125th anniversary season starting in the fall!
