Soon, Las Vegas will have its very own home for Curling!

Every Winter Olympics, the sport of Curling seems to capture our hearts. Seeing the stone gliding down a perfect sheet of ice, the shouting, the sweeping. It’s like cold chess. Here in Las Vegas, the excitement doesn’t end when the Olympics flame is extinguished.

The only issue has been finding a home for the non-profit CurlVegas. The group has been using the Las Vegas Ice Center on Flamingo as their home for years. Sure, it’s a great place for ice skating and hockey, but not ideal for this sport. Curling requires a specifically tailored ice that is ideal for this specific type of granite to glide perfectly. Hockey ice doesn’t have that same level of care, plus gashes from skates are less than ideal.

Well… after raising money for quite a while, CurlVegas is ready to open a home of their own!

Las Vegas getting its own dedicated Curling ice

The non-profit announced that, at long last, they have raised enough money to get started on a new Curling center that will open near Sunset Park in early 2024.

3525 E Post Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89120

The center is expected to cost around $1,000,000 to convert and soon after will become a dedicated home for the sport.

Great for curlers, but what about me?

There are two types of people: those who have played Curling and those who should try it. If you find yourself as one of the latter, you’re in luck! CurlVegas has been introducing newbies to the sport for years. The community is incredibly welcoming and their learn to curl lessons make it easy to learn the sport. Just bring yourself, some warmish clothes and a good attitude.

You’ll be chucking stones down the ice in no time and finding yourself shouting down the ice and getting into the sport.

If you’re interested in taking part, visit the CurlVegas website and if you’re down for a fun night, a charity poker tournament is taking place on Saturday, August 26th. The winner takes home $5000 and you could be playing against 2018 Gold Medal Olympian Tyler George.
