GNCC Arena Championship

June 9-11, 2023


Getting Here



The Rocket City Curling Club is proud to announce that we will be hosting the 2023 GNCC Arena Championship! The event is an open format, with teams made up of any combination of men and women throwing in any order.

Registration is $400, and there is a three-game guarantee.

The main requirements are that all members of the team curl regularly on arena ice, and they all play in a GNCC member club. You can read the full rules here.

We will accept one team from each GNCC arena club until we reach the maximum of 32 teams.  If we get multiple entries from the same club, it will be up to that club’s president to decide who gets the automatic entry and who gets put on the wait list.

After the April 28, 2023 deadline, if we haven’t filled the field, we will accept waitlisted teams in the order outlined in the GNCC rules.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email:
