You’ve golfed with us…

Now IFMA Greater Phoenix would like to bring you the first event of its kind: The Greater Phoenix Curling Cup!

You’ve watched it on the Olympics… it looks like life-sized shuffleboard…now it’s your turn to try it in person!

With 8 teams of 4, this is exclusive event will help you get to know your peers on a whole new level!

Each team will have one FM champion …and WE want to see our FMs compete for the ultimate title of the IFMA Greater Phoenix Curling Cup Winner!

Who will take home the honors?!

If this historic Scottish sport and the pressure is too much for your taste– come cheer on your Greater Phoenix mates as a spectator and sample a delicious offering of  authentic Scottish food!

Sponsorships are available!


4:00 pm-4:45 pm: Mingling and off ice tutorial about curling.  

4:45 pm-5:30 pm:  On ice teaching everyone how to deliver (throw) the rocks, how to sweep, and how to move on the ice safely.

5:30 pm-6:00 pm:  Off ice break...time to warm up and have a beverage.

6:00 pm-7:00 pm:  Back on ice, in teams ready to play 4 ends (half game)

7:00pm - ?:  Networking and having fun! 

- No physical restrictions. People with knee or hip trouble can use an extender.

- For rules and expectation you can watch this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOk9SVzqHsk )


For your safety and enjoyment, please don't forget to pack a clean pair of athletic shoes to wear out on the ice (the shoes you arrive in are not permitted out on the ice). The smallest rock or leaf can really effect the playing surface and we'd hate all of your great shots to go off target! Also make sure you have athletic pants (to allow for lunges and squats) or jeans to wear out on the ice, shorts aren't permitted as exposed skin (legs, knees) melts the ice very quickly and leaves dead spots on the ice.

The temperature out in the curling rink is approximately 40 degrees and the ice surface is closer to 22 degrees. Dress warmly but in layers! We start off cool but can work up a sweat out on the ice! Good socks, gloves, toques, protective headgear, and/or volleyball type knee pads are all permitted!
