Want to curl like the Olympians? Curling is always a huge hit at the Winter Olympics, and everyone wants to learn how to do it! It may look simple, but there is definitely technique and strategy to it. The good news is that anyone can learn (just don’t expect to go to Beijing in 2020).
The Columbus Curling Club is offering two hour Learn to Curl clinics for only $35! All you need is clean tennis shoes – they provide the rest. Clinics consists of 15 minutes of off-ice instruction, about 50 minutes learning how to sweep and deliver stones, then it’s off to play a couple of ends of a game. Stick around after the clinic for ‘broomstacking’ (socializing) in the warm room. Curling is appropriate for all ages 11-12+*, levels of fitness, and is even wheelchair accessible -anyone can learn to curl! There’s plenty of room for spectators to watch too.

If you have a larger group of people or would like to have a curling party for up to 24 people, they have private instruction options as well.
Have kids or teens at home? Columbus Curling Club offers Little Tykes Curling and Junior’s Drop-in programs on select Saturdays to introduce youth to the sport of Curling. Sessions are only $10 and just require clean tennis shoes and some sort of helmet (bicycle, ski, etc) for head protection while on the ice. There are upcoming Junior’s Drop-in sessions available now, but check back later for new Little Tykes sessions this winter!
