16 Apr 2011 – Both new and returning curlers will benefit from Auckland Curling Club's Skills, Strategy and Etiquette Clinic this Sunday says club president Al Langille.

"Whether your curling experience is one week, one season or decades, you'll find it valuable," he says. "The cost is $10, but this will be credited to your membership fees."

Anyone who missed last week's successful "Have A Go" night will also have another chance this Sunday.

5 Apr 2011 – Dates for Auckland Curling's Club and Secondary School league have been confirmed.

This will be an exciting year for the club with Paradice coming through on their commitment to improve the facility. Enhancements include a new Ice Plant, new cooling pipes and floor, rock cooler closer to the ice, new boards with glass all around and new air conditioning.

11 Apr 2011 – Auckland Curling Club's season-opening Have A Go night last Sunday 10 April was a big success says club President Al Langille.

"We had 50 new players take to the ice," he said. "And we hope to see many of them back for more in the club or school league this year."

The club will follow up with a skills and training session on Sunday 17th, and after the Easter break the club league proper will start on Sunday 1st May.

18 Oct 2010 – For the third year running, Auckland Curling Club's Premier League Final was a last-stone thriller. And for the third year running, the skip of the winning team was a Scotsman called Kenny.

Last year Kenny Thomson led A.R.S.E. to a dramatic extra-end win to take the Cameron Shield, and this year Altitude's Kenny Williamson clinched the title with his last stone to repeat his team's 2008 victory.

23 Aug 2010 – It was Auckland's Under-21 curlers who took the honours in the 2010 Auckland Mixed Doubles Curling Championship at Paradice Avondale on Sunday 22 August.

Chelsea Farley and Keswick Pearson won the trophy with a perfect record, while Chelsea's sister Tessa and Kieran Ford took the runner-up spot. Another Auckland junior, Eleanor Adviento, teamed up with 2006 Olympian Lorne DePape to claim third.

13 Jul 2010 – For the first time in the club was founded in 1996, Auckland Curling Club entered two teams in the Bonspiel called earlier this month.

New Zealand is one of the few countries where curling is still often played in the traditional crampit style. There are regular competitions on artificial ice (indoors at Dunedin and Gore, outdoors at Alexandra and Naseby), and other competitions are played on natural ice when the weather and ice conditions allow.

17 May 2010 – A record number of teams in this year's Auckland Curling league has created a welcome headache for club organisers.

Club president Peter Taylor says that curlers cannot get enough ice time for teams to play every week. "We now have 20 teams entered in our league", he said. "However, we can only accommodate two rounds of games - 16 teams - on a club night, so some sides are forced to sit out each week".
