Frequently asked questions 


1. What ages can play the sport?

Any age from five years old to no age limit. We have players over 80 years old still playing. Unfortunately, our club does not have a Junior program, although we do have the little rocks for this program. We do have a ‘senior’ league which curls during the day every weekday, but there are really not age restrictions to the days and times of our leagues. The Learn to Curl program we have has had curlers ranging from teens to seniors and it’s great fun.

2. What physical condition do you have to be in?

If you are able to walk and have good balance, you should be able to play. Many curlers who have difficulty with balance, or with bending their hips or knees may use a special stick to deliver the stones.

3. Can I get hurt playing the sport?

As in any other sport, there is always the risk of sustaining an injury. With the proper equipment and training, the risk is minimized considerably. There is also new safety equipment available today which helps to protect the head, knees, wrists, etc. should a fall occur. 

4. Is it an expensive sport?

Relatively speaking, it is reasonable when compared to the costs of playing hockey and golf. The season, which lasts from mid-October to the end of March/early April timeframe, runs from $500 or more depending on how many leagues you want to play.

For consideration, there are also grants available, such as: https://kidsportcanada.ca/ontario/ottawa/ or the CurlON Sticks and Stones fund for youth. 

5. Do I need expensive equipment?

No, you can start with a clean pair of sneakers and a $25 gripper and slider that fits over your shoe. As you develop your skills in the game, you can buy special shoes and your own broom, which can typically be around or under $200.

6. Do I have to bring a full team to play? What if it’s only myself signing up and I don’t have a team of four?

There are usually members who are looking for teammates or spares during the season, so if you are an individual signing up and wish to play in a league, please do not be discouraged and sign up today! You may also contact us ahead of time and we can see who may need an extra player or what options are available to best suit your needs. 


7. Does the Club have an AED (automated external defibrillator)?

The Club does have an AED for Club use. The Cumberland Curling Club invites you to view a video on how to use the AED that is available at the Club. The Club has ADULT PADS ONLY.

Taking the time to familiarize yourselves with the AED and how it works could potentially save another member's life. 

Type: Zoll AED Plus
