Ladies ringette in Gloucester Township was started by the Blackburn ladies ringette team in 1975-76. In the early years it was also played in the Orleans, Casselman and Russell areas.
The Blackburn ladies decided to hold the first ever Silverspoon Tournament in 1978 to reciprocate the invitations they had recieved from the Woolwich and Ajax ladies ringette teams. At the time, the Ajax ladies had the Silver Ring tournament and Woolwich had the Silver Cup tournament.
The Silverspoon name and trophy were chosen because they wanted a trophy that represented their township. At the time there were sterling silver spoons available bearing the crest of the municipality. This tradition has been proudly kept over the years (when possible!). The consolation prize was a silver coffee spoon with the letter G engraved on it.
Leitrim Arena (Fred Barrett Arena) was booked for the first ever tournament and we still play there to this date!
18+ Open A
18+ Open BB, B, C, Dev

For over forty years, this tournament has been a popular event in the community, driven by tradition and the love of the sport. Our tournament hosts more than 30 teams from the Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa regions!
