Fenton's Curling Rink is an ideal venue for a fun sporting experience with a difference.   Curling is a winter Olympic sport and the rink at Fenton's is a full sized ice pad, exactly then same as played on by top athletes.   But it's a game that is easy for beginners to pick up and have fun from the start!  

The object of the game is very simple - you slide a granite stone from one end of the rink to the other, trying to get it to stop in a target at the far end of the ice - a distance of 45 metres.  Sounds easy?   It is - but accuracy is something else!

The game is normally plaid between two teams of 4, each team member playing two stones, taking turns to throw the stone, or sweep the ice with special brushes to help the stone along.   Every team member is involved in every shot - so plenty of opportunity to shout encouragement (or abuse) at your team members!

We always provide a coach with you on the ice, to show you how to play - and get you playing a game, all within a two-hour session.

We recommend you aim to have eight players for one lane (although we can squeeze on up to 10 players); we have three lanes, so you can have a part for up to 30 players, all on the ice at one time.
