Where do you start?

Contact a Curling Club near you and find out when you can get some instruction and how soon you can start. Seasonal rates are very reasonable, and some clubs offer half season rates too.

To start curling, all you need are some warm loose pants and jacket, gloves or mitts and clean running shoes. At orientation sessions, the instructors will have sliders or sliding tape that you can use.

As you progress, purchase a slider or some curling shoes and your own broom (if you want) and that's it.
