Club History

The Petersham Curling Club was founded in 1960 and today is one of only 4 dedicated curling clubs in operation in Massachusetts. The founders of the Club were, for the most part, employees of the Union Twist Drill Company (UTD) in Athol, MA. The President of the UTD, Stanley L. Holland, was brought in to run the Athol UTD operations from a Butterfield plant in Rock Island, Quebec. As a curler, Stan was determined to start a club near the UTD plant in Athol.

In the late 1950's, a plan was made to purchase land from the Petersham Country Club on which to build the Curling Club. Property was carved out of the Country Club's land, was sold to the Curling Club on July 1, 1960, and the building of the Club was underway!

The official groundbreaking of the Club was held on July 24, 1960. The cost to build the 2-sheet club at the time was $50,000 and it was modeled after the Border Curling Club in Stanstead, Quebec (Stan's home club). To this day, the Petersham Curling Club and the Border Curling Club continue to be "sister clubs" and members often curl at bonspiels held at each others' clubs.
