Try Curling

Why try curling?

Anyone from the age of 8 and above is welcome. You’ll regularly see children as young as 8 out on the ice alongside veterans in their 80s and beyond! The sport is also very inclusive, with clubs for wheelchair users and the visually-impaired, as well as the newly-developed British Sign Language for curling. For those with mobility issues, Delivery Sticks allow stones to be delivered comfortably from a standing position or from a wheelchair.

It’s a great way to be active and exercise. Curling may look like a slow game, but you will be constantly moving up and down the ice for 2 hours, and the sweeping can be a lot more physical than you’d imagine!

Make new friends and join a community. Curling may be a competitive sport, but it’s also incredibly social. The ice is a great place to spend quality time with friends and family as well as to meet new people. Plus it’s tradition to join your opponent for a drink and chat after the game!

Join a Try Curling Session

Try Curling sessions provide a great taster to the sport with an introduction to the basics of how to play.

Sessions are held regularly throughout the curling season (September – March), and last approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. Try Curling sessions cost £10 per person, and are perfect for individuals or small groups (subject to spaces).

Subject to our ice availability, we can also accommodate Group Experiences (suitable for a wide variety of groups exceeding 4 participants) and Private Coaching sessions.

Participants will get comfortable on the ice, be introduced to the basic rules of the sport, and learn how to deliver a stone as well as sweep.

Families and small groups are welcome. 

All equipment is supplied including brushes, sliders, and delivery sticks if required. All you need is warm, loose fitting clothing and to bring a spare pair of clean, flat, rubber-soled shoes to change into once after arriving in the ice hall.
