Q – What size of a group do I need, and what size range can you accommodate?
A – Typically we ask that your group be at least 8 people, and be no more than 40 people. We have accommodated groups much bigger than 40 before, but at that size, please contact us to discuss relevant details.

Also included is the use of all necessary curling equipment (though people in your group still need to dress appropriately as answered below). Food and Beverage are also available for additional fees. Please contact us for details.
Q – Is there an off-ice meeting room available to my group?

Q – Do I need any special equipment?
A – All curling related equipment will be provided by the Cincinnati Curling Club
Q – What should I wear?
A – Curling is played on ice, so dress warmly. The typical temperature on the ice is in the mid 40’s. It is best to wear loose fitting clothing, and wear layers. Many curlers wear athletic warm-up pants, yoga pants, or other similar sweat pants. While it is OK to wear jeans, jeans tend to be a little too restrictive in movement allowed for most people. Remember that during curling, you will be getting into a lunge position, so make sure that your clothing allows for this. Another key to clothing is to wear layers. Most people tend to get warm after sweeping for a bit, and they will take off a sweatshirt or other layer to they don’t overheat. It is best to wear gloves that will allow basic dexterity.
Q – What shoes should I wear?
A – No Heels, Sandals or open toed shoes are permitted on the ice. It is best to wear normal athletic or running shoes. All shoes must be clean before you will be allowed on the ice. Failure to wear the correct footwear will result in you not being allowed onto the ice.
Q – Do I need to be a member of the Cincinnati Curling Club to come and curl?
A – For the Learn To Curl Clinics and Instructional Leagues that we are running, you do not need to be a member to come out and try curling. If you would like to curl in one of our other leagues, you will need to join the club.
Q – If I love curling after my first time, how can I curl more?
A – We have all kinds of options for people to join our club. Anyone is welcome to become a member and join our club. We offer multiple curling leagues, ranging from leagues for the highly competitive to instructional leagues intended to help beginners learn the game better.
