Looking for something new and different to entertain your group? The Charlotte Curling Association offers corporate and private group events at our state-of-the-art curling facility from September through April. Check out this video to see an event in action:
Curling is a fun, active sport that can be enjoyed across a wide range of ages and athletic abilities. Our volunteer instructors make sure that anyone who wants to curl, including those with disabilities, can do so and have a great time. Behind all the fun, attendees will be learning about strategy, teamwork, good sportsmanship, and leadership – skills that easily transfer off-ice. Most attendees have never tried curling before, which makes it a unique bonding experience for all members of the group.
Even participants who wish to only be spectators will find entertainment and comfort in our warm room, which overlooks the ice and hosts our bar, TVs, and plenty of games.
Whether you are looking for a team building event, corporate holiday celebration or fun employee outing, we can offer a personalized, memorable experience for you! (Event opportunities are limited based on time and instructor availability).
What happens during an event?
Your event will start with a short introduction and safety session. After that, it’s time to hit the ice! Our instructors will break the group into smaller segments to teach the basics of curling, and then attendees will reunite into groups of eight for some friendly competition. This is a great setting for team building events, as communication, trust, and decision making are emphasized during the short game.
Following the game, our warm room is available for relaxation and socialization, which can be customized depending on your needs. Our bar offers beer, wine, and limited liquor drinks. While we do not have food preparation facilities, you can bring food in or hire a catering service.

Time availabilities are Wednesday evenings and Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons only.
How much does it cost?
A typical group event (~ 3 hours) consists of instruction, a short game, and social time. We can accommodate up to 32 people on the ice at a time, with plenty of space in the warm room for spectators. (Group size minimums and maximums may vary during the season).
The standard rate for private events (2017 - 2018) is $50 per person plus bar charges (if applicable). Minimum cost - $600 for daytime events and $1,200 for Wed evening events (event fee only - does not include bar or other charges). Additional fees may apply for exclusive use of the facilities, special guest appearances, or where association activities are displaced.

Testimonials and Reviews
"What an amazing place. The instructors were so much fun and extremely helpful. Even though lessons were expedited, they were able to explain the basics and get our game started quickly... The lounge overlooking the court was a large, comfortable hangout perfect for work team building or any other kind of get-together." - Michelle S., Yelp Elite User
"Thanks to the Charlotte Curling Association staff and volunteers who helped make this a safe, memorable afternoon for our team. We all commented at just how much we learned in the first hour before being able to play some in the second hour. [The instructors] made a very steep learning curve a much more short, fun one." - David, Corporate Event Participant
