A proud member of the Leaside community for nearly 60 years, Leaside Curling Club is a vibrant not-for-profit organization. This wheelchair-accessible facility is open from September to April and features 8 sheets of curling ice, a lounge, bar, pro shop, and change rooms.
With more than 1,000 members and 20+ leagues for curlers of all ages and abilities, Leaside is the province's largest curling club. Our club pro is John Epping, who is top-ranked on the World Curling Tour. He can be booked for individual or team lessons.
For non-members, club and ice rental, bonspiels and learn to curl programming are available throughout the season.
Leaside Curling Club was founded in 1963 in response to community requests for a neighbourhood curling club. The City of Toronto built the club's 8-sheet ice facility and its member-elected Board of Directors managed all aspects of the club's operation in partnership with the City's Parks and Recreation Department which provided management and maintenance support.
In 2014, the club's membership voted to approve a proposal through which the membership would lease the facility from the City and be responsible for the overall operations and management of the club. The city and board entered into a licence agreement effective July 1, 2015, and the board of directors has successfully managed the operations since that date.
Our Vision, Mission and Values
Leaside Curling Club is located in the city of Toronto. "The City of Toronto acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. The City also acknowledges that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands."
