About Our Club

The Hamilton Victoria Club is the longest continuing sporting activity in the Hamilton Wentworth Area.  We are even older than the world famous "AROUND THE BAY ROAD RACE".

The Vic finds its roots in The Hamilton Mechanics Curling Club, which was originally located at the corner of Main St. E. and Catherine St. starting in 1867.  The year 1880 saw the organization change its name to The Caledonian Curling Club.

In 1888, due to rapidly expanding membership, the Caledonia Club needed to purchase a new site at the corner of Victoria Ave. S. and Young St.  The new site was big enough for both a curling rink and lawn bowling greens.  Upon moving into its new home in 1889, the Caledonia Club changed its name to reflect the new location becoming the Hamilton Victoria Curling Club.

Growth once again prompted a move so in 1905, The Vic moved to its present location, with space for lawn bowlers and a dedicated facility for 4 sheets of ice for curling.  1926 saw the installation of the first "artificial ice" making plant in the area.  Prior to the invention of artificial ice, mother nature determined when the curling season would start and end.

In 1963 the bowling green area was closed down, severed and sold due to waning interest.  The funds were used to finance assorted renovations.  Eventually, Dr. Elizabeth Bagshaw and Mr William Inrig Sr. opened the 9th End Lounge in 1975.

2017 marked the 150th anniversary of our club, which was celebrated in a Gala Evening in March.  Also in 2017, The Vic received a significant donation from the City of Hamilton Future Fund which is being used to update the infrastructure to support curling for the next 150 years

Over the years, the Hamilton Victoria Curling Club has had vital support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and we would like to publicly thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their generosity.
