Interested in trying curling like you saw on television during the Olympics? You can sign up for one of our “Learn-to-Curl” classes.
Where is the Pittsburgh Curling Club?
Pittsburgh’s ONLY curling club is located at the Robert Morris University Island Sports Center on Neville Island, just off I-79 exit 65. See the RMUISC link on our main page for maps & directions.
(Address: 7600 Grand Avenue Pittsburgh, PA 15225)
Do I need any equipment?
No! We have all the equipment you need to learn to curl. Just be sure to wear warm, comfortable clothing -track pants or sweatpants work best, and athletic rubber soled shoes such as tennis shoes. You’ll be good to go!!
Is curling hard to do?
Curling is easy to learn and fun to play right from the first stone you throw. Most everyone we meet has seen curling televised at the Winter Olympics – looks easy, right? Curling is a sport of strategy and finesse and, as with any sport, the more you do it the better at it you become.
Who can “Learn-to-Curl”? Can my kids try it?
Curling is a “lifetime” sport for people of all ages and abilities. We love for kids to try curling!! Because it takes a certain amount of strength to slide the 42 pound granite stones down the ice, kids about 9 years and up are generally able to participate. We can also accommodate wheelchair curlers and those who may not be as flexible as they once were with “stick” curling. Don’t know what that is? Don’t worry, just come to the sessions and we’ll get you curling. Waivers must be signed by all participants. Parents or legal guardians must sign waivers for children under 18 years of age. Waivers are available at curling sessions or you can request one in advance by emailing Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I like it?
You can join the Pittsburgh Curling Club as an individual, couple, team or even a group. We can help by placing you on a team with more experienced players or we can help you organize your team. Already, many people living in the Pittsburgh area are already curling in the regular league. Some are even traveling to other clubs and competing in curling tournaments called bonspiels. Check out the membership page for information on fees.
Come and try curling – fun is just a stone’s throw away!
We hope to see you soon!
