Curling was already practised in our resort before the First World War… in 1912.
There, some Champérolains, equipped with rice brooms, would sweep in front of stones, which they would never have done in front of their door…
But the real history of the club begins in 1950. One day villagers discovered stones left by tourists in a room near the ice rink. They were going to bring these stones back to life… A first tournament – called the Fonjallaz tournament – aroused enthusiasm and it was decided to found a club. Raised to the rank of godmother, Madame Colette Jean gave the CC Champéry the name “Pousse-Cailloux”.

Our 3-lane curling hall allows the most demanding clubs to train from mid-September to mid-April.
Have you ever tried it? We heart often that it seems easier on TV.
Upon registration, the members of the Club de Champéry will give you all their secrets during an initiation.
