Curling is an Olympic sport enjoyed by all ages and skill levels. It is a true team sport that is played on ice prepared especially for throwing 42 pound granite rocks down to precise locations at the opposite end of the ice.
Sweeping will allow the rock to stay straight and carry farther.
The four person team is directed by the skip who throws the last two “rocks” in each end. Eight stones are shared by the 4 team members and the loser of the eight end game always wins since the winner is responsible for the refreshments!
Come enjoy the fun and spirit of the Belfast Curling Club. For more information check out our website or email our membership chairman.
