Our Club

Founded in 1961, the Potomac Curling Club has been in its current location in Laurel, Maryland since 2002. Attached to the Gardens Ice House, the club is a four sheet facility with a warm room, kitchen area, and locker rooms. We also have fully serviced kitchen, and a pro shop for any curling related items that you may need.

The facility is entirely run by the volunteer efforts of our members, including making and maintaining the ice, ensuring that the building is in shape, hosting bonspiels, the 2004 USWCA Senior Women’s Bonspiel, the 2005 USCA Mixed National Championship, and recruiting new members.
