What is the game of Curling any way?

Well, despite the perception that Curling is a slow-paced game, we promise you this is just a perception. The game of Curling contains elements of great skill, strategy, finesse, exertion and endeavour. Curling is an extremely complex sport based around a very simple idea. Slide a stone down a sheet of ice and have it stop as near the centre of the house (a set of rings) as possible. The challenge being that your opposition will do everything tactically possible to stop you from achieving this goal.

We invite you to play the game of curling and see for yourself how much fun and exercise that you can get out of this great sport. To start curling you can contact your local curling club, provincial or territorial organization, or national organization through our Related Sites page, or check your yellow pages under “Curling Clubs”.
