Drayton Curling Club

Drayton is home to North Dakota’s oldest curling organization, founded in 1901 as Dacotah Curling Club. Curling quickly became a popular pastime here during winter months when travel became more difficult, farm activity slowed, and people sought opportunities to socialize and exercise. The sport of curling is very much woven into the history of the Drayton area.

Curling is a lifelong recreational and athletic sport enjoyed by people of all ages. It is a game of skill and traditions, dictated by a strong code of fair play and courtesy. A curler delights in a shot well-executed even by the opponent and plays to win in an environment of sportsmanship and good cheer.

Today, Drayton Curling Club keeps that sense of tradition alive, while cultivating a thoroughly modern vibe that appeals to all ages.  Curlers and spectators enjoy the clubhouse’s rustic knotty pine interior, while in our bright and heated arena, ice is kept cool by a state-of-the-art refrigeration system installed in 2020.  The corn brooms and heavy wool sweaters of years past have given way to fabric brushes and sporty curling gear.  League curling takes place weekly in the winter months, we host several youth events during the season, and our annual Catfish Capital Summer Spiel is an event that grows each year.   We hold annual spring and fall meetings.

We welcome new curlers of all ages!  Don't have a team but still want to curl?  We'll find a team for you to join.  First-year membership is discounted, and high school students curl FREE the first season and are eligible for a $1000 scholarship if they curl two consecutive seasons.
