Women on the Ice

The Grand Rapids (Michigan) Women’s Curling Club claims to be the first curling club for women in the USA in 1908. The women’s curling team was a notable exception to the turn-of-the-century attitude that women should not participate in competitive sports.  They curled at the Grand Rapids CC (founded in 1902) located at the corner of Lake Drive and Norwood Avenue in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Note the ‘T’ shaped rock handles.
