Ice is Ready

Thank you to the Ice Team for working so diligently. The ice is now ready.

Rent Our Facility

Do you want to try curling with just your friends or office mates? The Potomac Curling Club rents its facilities at the National Capital Curling Center for group outings. The center is located next to The Gardens Ice House at 13810 Old Gunpowder Rd., Laurel, MD 20707. Click here for a detailed map courtesy of Google Maps.

We supply all necessary equipment and basic instruction.

A “typical” rental begins with 45 to 60 minutes of instruction covering safety, sweeping, stone delivery, scoring, a bit about curling courtesy and how to play the game. Your group then returns to the warm room to warm up, form teams, and then goes back out on the ice to actually play an abbreviated (four ends) game. Some groups bring beverages and a snack for broomstacking back in the warm room. Wear warm, loose fitting clothes and clean flat soled shoes. Sneakers are OK. A release will be needed.

Available rental dates and prices to be announced.

Advertising Advantage

The Potomac Curling Club is located at the National Capital Curling Center (NCCC), in Laurel, Maryland, adjacent to The Gardens Ice House complex. The facility maintains four sheets (playing surfaces) of world class quality curling ice, a kitchen, dressing rooms, and a warm room (lounge) for socializing and spectating.
