You've seen the curling at the Games on TV and you've thought that looks like fun – could I do that? Well, yes it is and yes you can!

We'd love to see you "down at the rink". You'll need warm, loose fitting clothing that you can stretch out in and clean, flat-soled shoes. Trainers are ideal.

We'll supply all the gear you need (there's not much) and give you a bit of coaching to get you started. You'll be curling in less than an hour. Where? Read on...

Central Otago

Central Otago and the Maniototo are the traditional heart of curling in New Zealand, with the game first introduced from Scotland by gold miners who came to Otago in the early 1860s.

The Maniototo Curling International rink at Naseby became the first dedicated indoor curling rink in the Southern Hemisphere when it opened in 2005. It is open year-round for both casual and competition play, and has hosted a number of international tournaments. Give them a call on (03) 444 9878 to arrange a time.


The Gore Curling Club has an indoor league at its local ice rink. Get in touch – they'd love to hear from you.
