Curling

Curling is a team sport with similarities to bowls and shuffleboard, played by two teams of four players each on a rectangular sheet of carefully prepared ice.

Teams take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones down the ice towards the target (called the house).

Two sweepers with brooms accompany each rock and use timing equipment and their best judgment, along with direction from their teammates, to help direct the stones to their resting place.

The complex nature of stone placement and shot selection has led some to refer to curling as "chess on ice”. Curling was incorporated into the Asian Winter Games in 2003.

List of disciplines

  • Curling

Curling was developed in Scotland as early as the 16th century, although some evidence exists that it developed in the Low Countries of Europe at about the same time. The first known curling club was the Royal Caledonian Curling Club, formed in 1843 and originally called the Grand Caledonian Curling Club.

During the 19th century, curling spread to many nations in Europe, as well as the United States, New Zealand, and especially Canada. In Canada, curling became very popular in the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.
