WHAT'S CURLING?

 

HOW TO PLAY

Curling is a sport which players slide granite stones across an ice area. It is played indoors. There are two teams of four players each. The stones curve (or curl) and each team will score points for each rock that goes into a circular target marked on the ice. This target has three rings and the teams score points for each rock that goes closest to the center of the target. The ice area has to be very flat and when the stones curl the ice, two players sweep the ice so that the stone keeps moving fast.
