If you decide to take up the game, our club store has available:

  • Brushes – cloth-covered, horse-hair (stiffest) or hogs hair (softest)
  • Curling shoes with slider atttached. Sliders are hard plastic, teflon, or stainless steel in order of increasing slipperiness. Curling shoes ususally have soft rubber soles for traction.
  • Removable sliders – full foot and half foot
  • Removable grippers, to protect slider or cover slider to ease walking on ice during sweeping
  • Curling Gloves (baseball batting gloves work well too)
  • Stop Watches – for timing rock speed
  • Broom Bags
  • Curling Pants – stretch material
  • Jackets and a variety of other clothing

You can also make your own stabilizer bar.
