Newcomers, come see why curling is the fastest growing winter sport in the country. Curling is an inclusive sport for all—whether you’re young or old, big or small, athletic or non athletic, curling is for you! We will also have lunch at their Broomstack Kitchen and Taproom.
What to bring: They have all the equipment for you there. Just bring a clean pair of sneakers, non-shedding clothes, hat and gloves if you wish, and your sense of adventure.
Curling has a long and rich history. While its origins are lost in the mists of time, Scottish curlers were already playing the game by the beginning of the 16th century on frozen ponds and lochs.
Their earliest equipment included stones formed by nature, each one unique. These stones often curved, or “curled,” as they slid down the ice, and the players used besoms or brooms to clear snow and debris from the path of the stones.
Today, curling is a game of strategy, finesse and strength, contested by teams generally comprised of four players. The principle of curling is simple – get your stone closer the center of the target circles, called the “house,” than your opponent. Players of all skill levels can participate and compete even at older ages than most sports allow.
AM SESSION - CURLING - 10:00 - 12:00; LUNCH - 12:00
