Used Gripper Bin in the Lounge.
There is a bin of used grippers in the club lounge. The club uses these grippers for the occasional novice clinic or corporate event where we have to make sure a group of non-curlers is outfitted to curl safely. They may also be used by some members who are taking advantage of the $99.00 trial membership.
These grippers are worn out and have been donated to the club by various members who have purchased new ones. They are ok to use occasionally for special events, or the five week trial membership, but they are not to be used on a regular basis. Old, used grippers can start to disintegrate and leave little bits of debris on the ice causing picks. In addition, they have lost much of their grip so they are not safe to use regularly.
A set of new grippers can be purchased for $25.00 including the tax in the Club’s Pro Shop. You can pay for them at the bar or in the club office. The club only carries Tournament or Asham grippers. If you prefer another brand you can visit one of the curling suppliers website and make a purchase. We have listed some of the popular sites below.
