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!
