How to Curl

Briefly, the game involves members of the team shooting (sliding) 42 lb. polished granite stones down a 146 ft. long sheet of ice helped by the sweeping of teammates to melt the ice and control the distance and direction of the stone. Closest stones to the target score points. The typical game consists of eight ends (innings). Curling is easy to learn but difficult to master. You can begin curling immediately after a brief introductory lesson. There are classes for new and advancing curlers. Developing a feel of the stone and a consistent delivery require proper instruction. No special clothing is required, but sweaters, loose fitting pants and gloves are the norm. Flat rubber soled shoes are recommended. The club supplies brooms, but many curlers decide to buy their own to assure a consistent performance.
