Step 1 – Try Curling

Why Try Curling?

Not only is curling Scotland’s traditional winter sport, but it is also a very popular feature of the Winter Olympics & Paralympics. Curling is an incredibly friendly and inclusive sport suitable for everyone. At Curl Edinburgh we have a diverse membership of curlers living across central Scotland and the Borders, ranging in age from 8 to well over 80. Adapted rules make the sport suitable for those with reduced mobility, wheelchairs, visual & hearing impairments.

Interested? Let’s get you on the ice

Our Try Curling sessions are the perfect commitment-free taster of the sport. For only £10/person you get roughly a 2 hour session with a qualified coach and all the equipment provided. The only thing you need to bring is a spare pair of spotlessly clean rubber-soled trainers for wearing on the ice. You will be part of a group of up to 8 participants, and learn all the basics before splitting into 2 teams for the authentic playing experience.

If you enjoy Try Curling, our Beginners Course followed by the New Stones beginners club are the next logical steps – but if you so wish, feel free to jump into any of the other clubs based here straight away!
