What is it?
Bowling’s wonderfully weird winter cousin is here! The Olympic sport of curling will be taking centre stage this winter as Queens in London hosts Sliders.
After taking East London by storm last winter, Sliders comes to West London, for the city’s first on-real-ice social curling experience. Sliding into the cool Queensway venue, prepare to team up with friends, family and foes and compete against each other at central London’s only permanent all-year round ice rink.
Queens will transform their legendary ice rink into the real home of social curling, with eight lanes being painted and coaching provided. The venue has recently undergone an impressive £4 million refurbishment, and is proud to host the new curling lanes. Alongside the games there will be a super-cool soundtrack under a giant disco ball and a Curling Cafe to relax in.
The game is simple yet addictive, relaxed yet intense, and is guaranteed to have you hooked from the first throw. Grip your stone and take on the challenge, where two teams of four players each battle it out.
Guests can get cosy in the bespoke Curling Cafe, a relaxing spot to watch the icy action where groups of four or more can pre-order drinks. Sip on hot chocolate while enjoying the warmth of overhead heat lamps before boldly stepping onto the ice for the next slide.
