The main floor of the center is dedicated to curling. Four sheets can be accommodated in its largest spectator mode, while up to six sheets for smaller audiences in regional events with more teams.

The grounds of the center also serve as the regional headquarters of the Royal Meckelnburgh Curling Association, and headquarters of the subsidiary Far-East and icestock associations.
