The Detroit Curling Club rents sheets of ice to groups interested in learning about curling. Rentals include all equipment and instruction. Rental time is limited since weekday evenings are reserved for member leagues and many weekends are dedicated to Club activities and bonspiels. The ice is available by the "sheet". The club has four sheets, each of which can accommodate up to eight players. The game is played with two teams of four players on each sheet, but teams of three will work, as well.
Curling Rental: A rental lasts two hours and starts with 20 to 30 minutes of training by one of our member instructors. The training section is followed by an actual game. Our club has viewing glass for observing on-ice activities from the warm room.
Rates: A sheet can be rented for $240 per sheet per two-hour period ($280 on weekends) regardless of the number of curlers, up to eight curlers per sheet. Each additional curler beyond the 8 per sheet will be an extra $30/person ($35 for weekend rentals). Rental fees include instruction and equipment. If there are members of your party who do not intend to curl but will only watch from the warm room, they will not count as part of your eight maximum participants.

Deposit: Once you receive confirmation of your reservation request, a deposit of $50 per sheet will be required to hold your reservation and will be applied to your finall bill. If the rental reservation is canceled within two weeks of the date, the deposit will be forfeited. The deposit must be made by PayPal. The payment link will be emailed to you. You do not need a PayPal account to pay through PayPal. The final payment may also be made ahead of time by PayPal or on the day of the rental at the club by credit card (MC, VISA, AMEX, Discover), check or cash. If final payment is made by credit card, we will accept only one credit card payment per rental.
Use of the Warm Room: Included with your rental, your group has use of the warm room during your rental plus a half hour before and a half hour after your rental. If you desire a longer period before or after, it must be arranged in advance (at time of booking). There is a $50/hour charge for use of the warm room. Please note that not all times are available as there may be Club events going on.
