About our partner: Madison Curling Club was founded in 1921 under the stadium bleachers of Camp Randall Stadium, where curlers hauled their own rocks to games for 8 years until a new club was built in 1929. After 79 years in the space at Burr Jones Field, we moved into our current state-of-the-art facility in McFarland, just south of Madison. We encourage anyone interested in learning more about the roaring game of curling, whether as a participant or a spectator, to contact us for more information - it is truly a sport for all ages!
The Madison Curling Club is proud of its five members who participated in the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang: Nina Roth, Becca Hamilton, Matt Hamilton, Kirk Black, and Justin Marshall. These athletes continue a legacy of Madison Curling Club being represented in Olympic curling, ever since the sport was first included in the Olympic competition as a demonstration sport in 1988.
