Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Many people have been perplexed by this late-night TV staple, which at first glance seems to be an exercise in absurdity. Team members on an ice rink brush at the ground as a large stone slides towards them, varying their brushstrokes to regulate the speed at which it travels. The aim is to get as close to the target as possible, leading some to describe it as lawn bowls on ice. An Olympic sport for over 15 years, curling relies on strategy as heavily as it does on fitness, and is played by all ages in 33 countries. The Victorian Curling Association offers ‘come and try’ sessions for the uninitiated. All equipment is provided, and coaches take you through the basics.
