As they often say; one of the easiest Sports to learn and play, but difficult to master. It is a fun, social and courteous game. Most of the leagues (especially the seniors) play for fun and exercise. There are also more competitive leagues but even those are "friendly". Our more experienced players will provide advice and answer your questions so that you will find yourself quickly fitting in.
Yes it is a sport on ice but our new members often tell us that with the right equipment it is not as slippery as it looks. There are special shoes that let you slide when delivering a rock but when walking on the ice a slip-on cover makes covers the sliding surface.
We encourage our members to purchase the proper shoes, gloves and helmet. This is not a big expense to start.
