What kind of fun could your group have at the Huntley Curling Club?
So you decided to try curling – great! This is a fantastic winter social sport and many who play once are often back time and time again.
Located next to the Carp Fairgrounds, Huntley Curling Club is a modern 4 sheet curling facility that can handle a total of 32 people playing at one time! There is also a two-level banquet area for those off the ice to sit back, relax and watch your friends/colleagues play. Each sheet also is equipped with an HD camera so both players and spectators can see the action at the other end of the ice.
Q: Do I need to provide my own equipment?
A: No, we simply ask that each person wears a clean pair of flat running shoes.
Q: What equipment do I need to curl?
A: The nice thing about curling is that it doesn’t require lots of equipment, making it ideal for groups to join in! All you need is clean footwear and a broom:
Footwear — Curling shoes are ideal but we understand that you may not have these, so we have a solution. We ask is that each person wears a clean pair of flat running shoes as we have step-on sliders for you to borrow and voila, instant curling shoes. Clean shoes help keep our ice in pristine condition, we appreciate your understanding.
Brooms — If you have your own curling broom that’s great! If not, we have brooms available for those who are renting.
Q: How much does borrowing equipment from Huntley Curling Club cost me?
A: Equipment is included with each rental at no extra cost.
Q: How cold is it out on the ice?
A: Curling ice is cool (about 4°C on the ice), much like going outside on a fresh sunny march day.
Q: What should I wear to curl?
A: We suggest you bring clothing you are comfortable and can move in. A long sleeve shirt or light jacket is preferable as you can add or shed layers as needed. We also suggest track or sweat pants as they are good for flexibility; avoid jeans or dress pants as they have little to no give. Glove or mitts are also a good idea to keep your hands warm.
Q: Is there a place for me to change before and after the game?
A: We offer locker rooms on the basement level for changing, as well as washrooms on the upper level. Please note we do not have showers on-site.
Q: How long does a game normally take to play?
A: Typically an 8-end curling game lasts about 2 hours. However, that can be lengthy for some new curlers so shorter games of 6-ends are often played.
