The Frogtown Curling Club as it exists today sprang from the St. Paul Curling Club. SPCC organized and operated the first year of curling at the Ramsey County owned Biff Adams Ice Arena from January-March 2011 with around 100 members. From that humble beginning the Frogtown Curling Club was officially formed in the fall 2011. With more than 150 charter members Frogtown became the second dedicated ice curling club in the Twin Cities that season.
In March of 2012 the inaugural club bonspiel, The Frogtown Bonspiel, was held. And in the summer of 2012, the first significant renovations were made to help turn the Biff Adams Ice Arena into a curling facility. Each summer from 2012 to 2016 significant changes and upgrades have been made to the club room, ice plant and arena areas of the club.
October 2013 saw Frogtown host its first open bonspiel with the Spiel of the Dead. The Spiel of the Dead has grown into one of the top Halloween bonspiels in the area with teams coming to Frogtown from across the state. In January 2015 the Twin Cities Curling Association hosted the first annual Big Spiel with 96 teams from across the US curling at the Frogtown, St. Paul and Four Seasons Curling Clubs over a 4-day period.
2016 was an important year for Frogtown as a new five year lease was signed with Ramsey County. Additionally, Frogtown started its’ fourth yearly bonspiel with the Polar Spiel. The Polar Spiel celebrates Frogtown’s unique curling environment where visitors and curlers alike get to see, hear and feel the “roar of the ice” during each and every game played at the club.
With the 2017-18 season Frogtown enters its seventh season and is approaching a membership of nearly 500 curlers. Facility improvements during the summer and fall of 2017 has doubled our heated club room space while also creating the Sheet E Lounge to provide near the ice viewing areas for visitors who want to see the action up close.
