Live in the Napa/Sacramento area? Learn to curl at our sister club, WineCountry Curling. They are currently holding a league and learn to curl clinics.


Learn-to-Curl Clinics

Try curling for the first time or refresh your skills at a curling clinic. These last about 1-2 hours and cover the basics of the curling delivery and sweeping. We'll also play coached games as space and time permit. Cost is $15 per person or $12.50 per person for groups for 4 or more. more about curling clinics
