Corporate & Group Events

Want to do something new for your next birthday party or corporate event? Try Curling!

Curling is a 500+ year old sport and was a cult hit at recent Olympics but few Americans have ever played the game. After your event here, you'll have a great answer to "What's new?" at your next cocktail party! Curling is team sport - from strategy, to delivery, to sweeping, everyone works together to make every shot. And, because few people have tried curling, everyone in your group will start out on equal footing.


What does a curling event entail?

Our group curling events are fun 2-hour introduction to the sport. Your group will learn the basic rules, strategy, and how to slide, throw, and sweep! After a bit of practice we'll divide up into teams (or you can come with teams already made!) and play 2 or 3 ends (like an inning) of a game. Anyone of any age or physical ability can curl. Don't worry if you can't manage the traditional lunge; we teach stick curling, too (it's like shuffleboard!). Our events are wheelchair accessible and we can accommodate a wide range of physical limitations - just ask if you're not sure! Instructors and all necessary equipment are included.

What is your availability?

We're moving! Our affiliation with Oakland Ice Center has ended and we will not be able to accommodate requests at that location. Beginning in early 2020, we'll be operating out of our own brand new Oakland facility - the only dedicated curling center in California! We'll have morning and afternoon availability most weekdays, with some limited evening and weekend time. The address of the new facility will be 8450 Enterprise Way in Oakland.

How much does it cost?

Curling is played on a "sheet" which is similar to a bowling lane. Generally curling is played with 8 people per sheet, but we let you squeeze in a few more. We have 5 sheets available. Pricing is $500 per sheet for weekday events and $400 per sheet for weekend or evening events (limited availability).

Sheets Participants Weekday Cost Weekend/Evening Cost
1 Sheet Up to 12 $500 $400
2 Sheets 13 to 20 $1000 $800
3 Sheets 21 to 30 $1500 $1200
4 Sheets 31 to 40 $2000 $1600
5 Sheets 41 to 50 $2500 $2000

If you have more than 50 participants we can arrange for a longer event to give everyone enough time on the ice. If you have fewer than 6 participants it's tough to get the full experience; we recommend signing up for one of our public Intro Clinics instead.

Deposit and Cancellation Policy: A $100 per sheet deposit is due upon contract signing with the balance due 10 days prior to the event. If a booking is made within 10 days of the event, payment in full is due upon contract signing. The deposit is refundable until 10 days prior to the event. If a cancellation is made within 10 days of the event the deposit is forfeited.

What should we wear?

We recommend you dress in layers, as you may initially be chilly but will warm up as you start moving around on the ice. Wear comfortable, flexible athletic-wear. Jeans are NOT appropriate. Bring a clean pair of sneakers. No boots, heels, cleats, or thin-soled shoes like ballet flats or Toms.
