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 teach thousands of Bay Area residents to curl every year!

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. But we can't do it without your support. Please join us and make your tax-deductible gift today: DONATE NOW!

South Bay Curlers Open Forum Tuesday Nov. 13th

We will be holding an open forum for South Bay curlers on Tuesday, November 13th, at 8pm in Stanley's at Sharks Ice San Jose. The board is beginning to plan our leagues, lessons and special events for 2013, and we want your input! Please think about when & where you want to curl, and come with your opinions on everything from league format to social mixers. And there's a bit of room on the ice for a few extra curlers for those interested! We look forward to seeing you there!

SFBACC at Giants vs. Padres September 23rd

We'll also tailgate at AT&T Park prior to the game to warm up our cheer (please bring your own refreshments) and don't forget to sport your Orange and Black!!!

Lawn Bowling Social a Success

Thanks to Kim Chapin, Emily Kimmel and the bowling star himself, Roland Gong, for organizing this great social event! About 40 curlers and guests came out to bowl for the afternoon. More photos coming soon on the club Picasa site.

Lawn Bowling Social Event

It's like curling...without the ice! Leave your slider and broom at home for the afternoon of July 22nd because the SFBACC will be swapping out stones and ice for bowls and grass. The fine folks at the Berkeley Lawn Bowling Club are opening their facilities to curlers (family and friends included) for a day of lawn bowling and socializing. We'll bowl on the green from 11AM to 2PM and then retire to the club house for food, drinks, and socializing.

More volunteers needed for corporate events

The holiday season brings corporate holiday parties and many like to try curling. These events CAN NOT happen without our support and if we can support them will earn the club near $2,000! Past events we have supported along with open houses have allowed us to purchase both freezers and improved stones for our curling pleasure, so your efforts are not wasted. Please juggle your work schedule and try and find a few hours so that you can come help instruct at one of these events. You don't have to be a seasoned pro to help either.
