If you’d like to try curling for the first time you’ll find everything you need here to get started including the latest taster sessions and beginners classes taking place across Scotland.
Beginner Classes give you the confidence and skills to play curling if you’ve never curled before or have previously enjoyed a Try Curling session. Each course lasts a total of approximately 6-8 hours and are available in a range of options including weekend sessions or four week blocks. Beginner Classes are delivered by Scottish Curling qualified coaches.
‘Virtual Clubs’ are open to all new curlers who have attended a Beginners Class and are a good introduction to the club environment, allowing you to play regularly with curlers at the same level, meet new people and try out different team positions with the support of a qualified coach. Members may also get the opportunity to play in inter club competitions and the National Virtual Club Bonspiel.Virtual Clubs are a relatively new concept and are being established in more and more ice rinks across the country, look out for one near you. For more information on Virtual Clubs please have a look at our Virtual Curling Club Guidelines and to find one near you please click here.
