Curling’s humble origins come from the frozen lochs of Scotland back in the 16th century. The game grew on frozen ponds as an enjoyable pastime for the harsh Northern European winter. Since then the beer league game has evolved into an elite Olympic sport. Curling appeared at the Olympics as a demonstration sport in the mid-1900s with curlers competing in the real-deal Olympics for the first time in 1998. Canada leads all countries with 11 Olympic medals, followed by Sweden and Switzerland. The United States has two Olympic medals for curling, including a gold medal in the 2018 Men’s tournament, where Team Shuster defeated Sweden in spectacular fashion.
Now’s your chance to join the fun! Try your hand at delivering some stones and before you know it you’ll be a pro with our new Street Curling Rink located at Massanutten Fitness & Rec Club. The first Street Curling rink made its debut at the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis. Street Curling uses synthetic ice to create a crowd-pleasing iceless curling experience. Street Curling is a game that is easy to play but difficult to master, however we have different types of stones to ensure that everyone can experience the fun. Whether it be a friendly game between family members or a competitive match among friends, Street Curling provides a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of the Olympic sport of curling.
Curling has similarities to shuffleboard and involves sliding granite stones, also called rocks, into a target area at the other end of a long, thin, strip of ice which constitutes the “pitch”. The team that propels their rocks closest to the center of the target scores points accordingly, with the path of the stone influenced by team members who sweep and brush the ice ahead of the stone in order to alter its speed or curl. Our Classic Stones have the look and feel of a true curling stone but they glide across the rink on casters. For the younger participants, we have Express Stones that roll on bearings and are much more lightweight than the Classic Stone.
Curling sessions are an hour long and will be limited to members of your group only. Up to eight people can play at a time.
