Renos Spruce Up Niverville Curling Club

There is a passionate group of curlers in Niverville and for the first time in a long while they have a newly renovated space in which to slide their stones.

The Niverville Curling Club was opened in 1978 and after more than 40 years was beginning to look very dated. But Warren Britton, the Town of Niverville’s Recreation Facility Manager, says the town was able to work some funds for much-needed renovations into last year’s budget.

The lobby of the curling club has been opened up to create a larger, more inviting space. According to Britton, this is especially important because they hope to be able to rent the space out.

“We focused on a more open floor plan, removed some walls, added new lights and flooring, and gave it a new coat of paint,” Britton says.

He feels that the rink’s most important function is as a home to Niverville’s curlers, but there are other clear opportunities for the facility.

“[W]e want to be able to continue to use it as rentable space,” he adds. “Even with the CRRC opening July 1, we want to have a good range of options for our community.”

The Niverville Curling Club curls on natural ice, which means the facility is dependent on cold weather. The league season will start again at the beginning of January 2022.
