Owatonna Curling Club, is a small, two-sheet club dedicated to the sport of Curling.
We may be small, but we are very active! Located on the Fairgrounds in Owatonna, we
have leagues on several evenings - check out the details below. We are, of course,
always looking for new members or teams, so come and give us a try!
Finding us is easy - we are directly across from the Steele County Fair Grandstand, on Elm Avenue.
From I-35, take 14 east towards Owatonna. Take the Owatonna exit, following the signs to Steele County Fairgrounds. Turn right off the ramp. Take the next right at the stop light onto SE 18th (by Walgreens), then the first left into S Elm. The curling club is on your left, just after the Stop sign.

Curling is a team game with similarities to bowls and shuffleboard, played by two teams of four players each on a rectangular sheet of carefully prepared ice. Teams take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones down the ice towards the target (called the house). Two sweepers with brooms accompany each rock and use timing equipment and their best judgment, along with direction from their teammates, to help direct the stones to their resting place. The complex nature of stone placement and shot selection has led some to refer to curling as "chess on ice."
