The world’s first women’s curling club, the Ladies Montreal Curling Club, was founded by Mrs. E.A. Whitehead on December 4th, 1894. Women had been known to curl before 1894, but in those days all curling clubs were for men only. In renting the all-male Montreal Curling Club’s facilities, Mrs. Whitehead’s club provided an opportunity for women to develop their curling skills and curl against their peers.
