Step 3 – New Stones

New Stones is our dedicated Beginners Club. It is open to individuals aged 8+ who have completed a Beginners Course and are within their first two seasons of curling.

Qualified coaches will lead you through informal sessions mixing practice with games. This provides a relaxed environment for new curlers to develop their skills alongside members of similar experience, and is the perfect pathway towards joining any of the 80+ clubs that play here.

Sessions are offered at a discounted rate, which includes the ice fees, provision of a qualified coach, and all equipment. You need bring only a spare pair of clean rubber-soled trainers to change into after arriving. Annual membership of New Stones itself is free but requires membership of Edinburgh Curling Club (which manages our off-ice facilities) and Scottish Curling (our national governing body, who help promote and develop the sport), both of which we will arrange for you via a New Stones membership form when you apply.
