Do you enjoy bocce ball or shuffleboard? What about the challenging strategy of chess? If so, then chances are good that you’ll love the popular sport of curling! The game is easy to learn and is great for individuals or groups of all shapes, sizes and skill levels. Over the past few years, the sport has become quite a hit as part of corporate or group events since it caters to everyone, is somewhat competitive in nature, and most importantly its safe and fun!
Don’t worry if you don’t know the game. Our local group of curling experts will teach you all of the skills necessary to make your first attempt a rock smacking success, and Hollywood Curling will provide the stones and brooms you’ll need!
Check out our Learn to Curl page for more details on the game and what to expect!
We’ll start with some quick safety talk and instruction. Depending on the duration of your party, and how quickly your participants catch on, we aim to get everyone adept at throwing stones within the first 30-40 minutes of the party. Full games are usually 8 ends, lasting 2 to 2.5 hours- in the typical party, we aim to do a condensed game consisting of 3 to 4 ends, time-permitting. (If your group are fast learners, you might get even more game time- we customize to suit your group’s needs). We can also arrange individual skills competitions and practice drills.
Dress in warm layers- it can be cold on the ice, especially at first, but you’ll warm up quickly once you start sweeping. You will be lunging, so choose pants that have some stretch or room. Shoes should be flat soled, closed-toe, clean, and should grip the ice well for walking (tennis shoes or sneakers). For the delivery, a "slider" should be worn on the sliding foot to allow a long, smooth-sliding follow through, which will be provided by Hollywood Curling.
