Our club is closed for the summer. Please check back October 1, 2019.
The Detroit Curling Club rents sheets of ice to groups interested in 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. The ice is available by the "sheet". The club has four sheets, each of which typically accommodates eight players.
Rental Time: A rental lasts two hours and starts with 20 to 30 minutes of training by one of our instructors, which is followed by an actual game.
Rates: Cost is $280 per sheet per two-hour period for up to eight curlers per sheet. Each additional curler beyond the 8 per sheet will be an extra $35/person. Rental fees include instruction and equipment.
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 final bill. The deposit must be made by PayPal. The payment link is part of the confirmation email. You do not need a PayPal account to pay through PayPal.
Final Payment: The final payment may be made ahead of time with PayPal or on the day of the rental at the Club by credit card or cash. If final payment is made by credit card, we will accept only one credit card payment per group.
Cancellations: If your reservation is cancelled less than two weeks before the rental date, the deposit will be forfeited.
Use of the Warm Room: Included with your rental, your group has the use of the warm room during your two-hour rental plus a half hour before your rental. Your group may have to share the warm room with other groups renting at the same time. You can request additional warm room time prior to the initial 30 minutes or after your rental, but it must be arranged in advance and there is no guarantee we can honor the request. There may be an additional charge.
Ages: Those curling must be 18 years or older but 11 - 17 year olds are allowed with prior approval.
Release of Liability Forms: Every person going on the ice is required to sign a Release of Liability form. A parent/guardian must sign for a minor. No exceptions.
What to Wear: Loose fitting clothing, light jacket, hat, gloves, clean tennis shoes. The arena temperature is usually around 38 degrees.
Food and Beverages: There is no food or beverage service provided by the Club, but a group can bring in food or have it delivered. NO ALCOHOL IS PERMITTED. Click here for a list of local food suggestions.
Arrival Times: Groups must arrive at least 30 minutes prior to ice time for preparation and off-ice instruction.
