About

Curling is a fun and challenging game combining physical and mental skill – each curler will aim to deliver the stones down the ice attempting to get closer to the centre of the target or ‘house’.

Active Stirling’s learn to curl programme follows the National Governing Body pathway from Scottish Curling.
