Upcoming Events

Established in 1958, the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club is the oldest arena curling club in the United States. SFBACC is a nationally-recognized leader in curling development, providing learning opportunities, youth scholarships, competitive development, recreational leagues, corporate and private events, and more. We have already taught thousands of Bay Area residents to curl in 2014. Now, we are raising funds to build a dedicated curling center right here in the Bay Area so that we can take these programs to the next level. Will you join us?
