Jönköping CC

The Jönköping Curling Club was founded in 1961. After some years of moonshine curling, the first indoor arena with four sheets was completed in 1981, wall to wall with the local ice hockey arena. With the success and expansion of the hockey club (HV71) the curling arena was demolished to give room for two new hockey rinks. Instead a new solitary curling arena was inaugurated in 2012 in a nearby location.

The new arena with six sheets is built with modern and sustainable technology, including a carbon dioxide-based cooling system. Moreover, spectator presentations, water, ventilation and control systems are based on an extensive experience from international competitions and ice making. With panoramic windows overlooking Vaettern, 

Sweden’s second and Europe’s sixth largest lake, players can also enjoy a natural scenery unequalled by few curling arenas. Sport enthusiasts can also enjoy proximity to other sports facilities such as tennis, badminton, squash and bowling. 

A sports hotel with bars and a restaurant lies nearby with indoor access from the arena.
Jönköping Curling Club has approximately 185 permanent members and is regularly represented in the highest Swedish curling league. 

Recently the club’s wheelchair players have reached international standard. Every year the club organises tournaments for the curling elite, as well as for club players. In 1985 the European Ladies Championship was held in Jönköping. The last event organised in the curling arena was the Swedish Championships, from 2-6 January 2019.
