This wonderful Olympic sport has found a home near Tunbridge Wells - the first and only curling ice rink in this country.
Come and try your hand at this exciting sport - it’s both fun and challenging!! Beginners quickly get going on the ice and have a great time - right from the start. Many people are new to the sport so don’t worry if you have yet to try curling - you will be in good company!
A curling party is ideal for your next staff outing, team building event, birthday party - or just a good time out with your friends. Christmas party bookings are very popular - book early!
It’s a game played on ice (without skates) between teams of four. It’s sometimes called “bowls on ice” - but there’s a lot more to it than that...
Curling is a game of skill and precision - but fun for beginners, right from the start! The normal game is played between 2 teams of 4 players, but we can adapt this for other numbers. Each player plays two stones in sequence, sliding the 20kg granite "rock" from one end of the ice rink to the other - about 45 metres in length, aiming at a target in the ice. The rest of the team help the stone along by sweeping - and the "skip" shouts instructions, encouragement and abuse at the rest of the team as they go along! The excitement and noise soon start to build up....
Curling started in Scotland and originally was played outdoors. Over the years the game has been refined and is now played mainly on indoor ice rinks. The major curling countries are Scotland, Canada, the Scandinavian countries, Switzerland, Germany, USA, China, Japan, Holland, Italy and France. Curling is in the Winter Olympics and is a major sport in Canada where over 1m people play the game.
CURLING - A GREAT IDEA FOR...
Birthday, Stag & Hen Parties
