Where is the Pittsburgh Curling Club?
The Pittsburgh Curling Club has begun curling at our new home at 491 Mccoy Road, Mckees Rocks PA 15136.
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. Children are welcome to try curling!! 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. Last season the club had over 140 members and many members travel to other clubs to compete in curling tournaments called bonspiels.
