Learn to Curl during the 2014 Winter Olympics

The Bowling Green Curling Club will be hosting Learn to Curl events during the 2014 Winter Olympics at the BGSU Ice Arena. Instruction and equipment will be provided, and participants are encouraged to visit the lounge after their session to meet some of our club members and to learn more about the sport.

Curling is a game of strategy, finesse and strength. The goal during play is simple – get your stones closer to the center of the target circles, called the “house,” than those of your opponent. It’s a game where it’s easy to learn the basics and have a good time playing, but it can also inspire a lifetime interest in perfecting techniques and strategies. Respect, honor and tradition are core elements of the game. Curlers are a close knit bunch and you can expect a warm welcome in our club, as well as in other curling clubs throughout the world.

The BGSU Ice Arena is at 417 North Mercer Road, Bowling Green, OH 43403.
