Our Early History
The club was founded by Mr. James A Orr, owner of the Sudbury Journal Printing Company. The first organizational meeting of The Sudbury Curling was held on January 1,1892.
The fist home of the Sudbury Curling Club was the newly constructed Matrin's rink with an open air ice surface. This rink was officially opened on January 11, 1892 and the first curling games took place on January 28, 1892. The Martin rink was built for both skating and curling. A pair of sheets flanked the cental skating area.
In 1893 a new out door rink was built. The rink was 175'x35' and it had 2 sheets of ice that were covered. This was our home for the next 11 years.
On January 1, 1904 the club moved to a new combination skating and curling rink. Later known as the Park Lane Rink. In September of 1910 a fire destroyed the rink and for the next 2 years there was no curling in Sudbury. A temporary 3 sheet rink was erected for the 1912-13 season.
By January, 1914 a new rink was completed and we had a new home exclusively dedicated to curling. There were 6 sheets of ice with an assembly room and men's locker room. In the fall of 1914 an artificial ice plant was install. We stayed at this building untill 1959, where wemoved to our current location at 300 Wessex street.
More historical information about our club can be found in the book. A Historical Sketch by Peter J. Bamford. Copies of A Historical Sketch can be found t he club.
