Between Christmas and New Year in 1999, six people met in the Small Hall at the current Paegas Arena in Prague to have a look at and try out a new sport they were to be introduced to. The sport was curling. Although they were formerly top-class sportsmen (with one exception) and had competed in many dance competitions, none of them certainly expected that in a few short years they would found a curling club, one of the first to be founded, which would become one of the biggest and most successful Czech clubs, and that a gamble on youth would enable the club to obtain not only a whole number of excellent placements, including many junior championships of the Czech Republic, but also podium finishes at adult Czech championships, including the highest possible - national champion.
And so in December 1990 OBČANSKÉ SDRUŽENÍ SAVONA and its curling club (CC SAVONA) were established. The name SAVONA was derived from the founders' surnames and has nothing in common with similar words (for example the name of a town in Northern Italy). CC SAVONA PRAHA has always been part of the civic association. The year the curling club was established was then reflected in an expansion of the original name to "CC SAVONA PRAHA 1990".
Our curling club merged with CC JUNIOR PRAHA in 1999. Since then the membership of CC SAVONA Praha 1990 has been around 50 curlers of various ages, although young people predominate.
