Some maintain the St. Moritz Curling Club to be the oldest curling club in Europe. The fact is that in 1894 the St. Moritz holiday curlers were accepted into the Royal Caledonian Curling Club of Scotland and from that moment club life took off. Only one year later they played for the "Royal Caledonian Medal" and from 1897 for the Jackson Cup, which is still played for today. A silver challenge cup is the winner’s trophy: it was donated in 1887 by a Mister N.L. Jackson. For a long time, the Jackson Cup was regarded as the most important tournament in Switzerland. With the foundation of the Swiss Curling Federation and an official Swiss championship, the Jackson Cup has lost some of its original glory. However, it is still an important event for the St. Moritz calendar and held every year. The sport of Curling is committed to a certain "Spirit of Curling". It demands sporting fair play as well as friendly and honourable conduct from every single person, both on and off the ice.
The Curling Club also offers regular taster courses for guests and locals. The exact course dates are published on the club’s website.
