Most facilities have a try-it-for-free policy and will not ask for a membership fee until you decide you like the sport enough to play it regularly. So call a club, ask for someone to show you how to throw a stone (20 minute lesson at most) and you’re on your way to enjoying the sport of curling.
Once you’re ready to join a league, you’ll probably find several options at your local curling club. They may even offer a Getting Started program for adults.
Although curling is a competitive and strategic game, 97% of all Canadian curlers play for fun and recreation — so don’t feel intimidated. There are leagues for new curlers and support to help you become a more accomplished curler.
See our FAQ section for more details regarding leagues and getting started.
