Ice skating is one of the greatest sports to enjoy. Gliding over the ice is a feeling like no other, be warned though, the feeling is addictive!

Have You Always Wanted To Try Curling?
Curling is a sport in which two teams of four players each slide 40 pound granite stones down a sheet of ice toward a target at the other end. Each team tries to get more of its stones closer to the centre of the target than the other team.
There is a great curling community here at Moray Leisure Centre with qualified coaches ready to show you the ropes!
We hold regular Try Curling sessions for people age 8+. All equipment is supplied including brushes and sliders. All you need is warm, loose fitting clothing and clean, flat, rubber soled shoes (trainers are ideal) to change into for curling. Delivery sticks allow stones to be delivered from a standing position or wheelchair and are available for those with mobility issues.
