Detroit Curling Club
Rent the Ice

Try Curling! Plan a curling event at the Detroit Curling Club!

New policies for this year are in red.

The Detroit Curling Club opens its facilities, on a fee basis, to non-member or member groups when there are no member activities planned. The rental of the club includes all equipment and instruction necessary for even the first-time curler. The Club operates between early November and late March. Rental time is limited since weekday evenings are reserved for member leagues and many weekends are also dedicated to club and member activities.

There is a special Weekday School Program that is available to school groups Monday through Wednesday during the day. Click here to access information on the program.

The ice is available by "sheet" or playing lane. The club has four sheets, each of which can accommodate up to eight players (32 players fill the curling arena). One to four sheets can be rented for each time period. The game is played with two teams of four players on each sheet, but teams of three will work, as well. The rental time per event is two hours. All equipment and instruction is included.

Description of a typical Curling Event: Your event starts off with 20 to 30 minutes of training by an experienced club member. Some of this is in the warm room but most is on ice. The training section is followed by an actual game. Our club has a viewing glass for observing the on-ice activities from the warmth of the warm room.

Rates: This year we are renting by sheet and not by head count. A sheet can be rented for $200 per two hour period regardless of the number of curlers, up to eight (8). This includes 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: A deposit of $50 per sheet is required at time of reservation to hold your reservation (the deposit will be used towards your total group cost the day of your rental). If the event is canceled or changed within two weeks of the date, the deposit will be forfeited. The deposit must be paid by PayPal.

Payment: This year, the deposit must be made by PayPal. The final payment may also be made ahead of time by PayPal or on the day of the event at the club by charge card (MC, VISA, AMEX, Discover), check or cash. If final payment is made by charge, we will accept only one payment per event.

Use of the Warm Room: Included with your rental, your group has use of the warm room during your event plus a half hour before and a half hour after your curling event. If you desire a longer period before or after (for a meal, birthday cake, meeting etc) it must be arranged in advance (at time of booking). There is a $30 an hour charge for use of the warm room. Please note that not all times are available as there may be club events going on before or after your event.

Age / Liability: 18 years or older (11 - 17 year olds are allowed with prior approval). Anyone going on the ice must sign a liability form prior to entering the ice area. Renters under 18 years old must have a form signed by a parent or guardian.

What to Wear: Loose fitting clothing, short jacket, hat, gloves, CLEAN tennis shoes (Please carry in the shoes you will be wearing on the ice). The arena temperature is usually around 40 degrees.

Food and Beverage: There is no food or beverage service provided by the club, but a group can bring in food from an outside vendor or have it delivered. NO ALCOHOL IS PERMITTED. (The Club Liquor License is limited to members and members' guests only.) This policy is strictly enforced.

Arrival Times: Groups must arrive at least 30 minutes prior to ice time for preparation and off-ice instruction.

Instructions for Booking Ice Time

  1. Review the above rental information covering rates, payment, age, what to wear, and what can be brought in to the club.
  2. Review the liability release form linked to here. The individual booking the ice time is responsible for sharing this document with their group prior to the reservation. All participants will be required to sign this form before entering the ice arena. Note: for those participants under the age of 18 a parent signature is required to be on the form.
  3. Review the available ice times from the table below.
  4. Send a rental request by email to rentals@detroitcurlingclub.com. Your email needs to include your selected date, time, and number of sheets. It is recommended that you pick an alternate choice in case your first choice is not available.
  5. A confirmation email will be returned to your email address. That email will include instructions and additional information.
  6. A PayPal invoice will also be e-mailed to you for the deposit. You must use the link in the PayPal invoice - do not send a PayPal payment directly to the club's email address.
