Regardless of your age and ability, we can teach you how to play curling, understand the rules, and enjoy regular games. We have a proven pathway where beginners can have fun developing their skills together by taking part in relaxed coaching sessions and games. We’ll also provide opportunities for you to meet the many clubs that regularly play at Curl Edinburgh, so you can make an informed choice about which ones would suit you for future seasons.
Step 1) No experience?
A public Try Curling session or private Group Experience is the perfect starting point: These will teach you the very basics before putting you into a real game. for people who have never been on curling ice. Within a small group, our qualified coaches will welcome everyone onto the ice and get you feeling comfortable (it’s not as slippy as wet outdoor ice). You’ll be taught how to sweep so you get warmed up and feel safe. Then you’ll have fun taking turns learning how to slide and deliver a stone. Once everyone has the basics your coach will guide you through a real game for the authentic curling experience.
