Ages 18 and up Rochester Curling Club
Members of the Rochester Curling Club will train you for

is a team sport played by men and women of all ages. A social
game, curling is full of strategy and is played on a special indoor
sheet of ice. Played by two teams of four players, curling is
often called “chess on ice” but more closely resembles bocce or
shufﬂeboard. With the rigorous sweeping required for many
shots, the game is a cardiovascular workout. The goal is to slide
your stone closest to the target and then maintain that advantage
while your competitor tries to get closer or knock your stone out.
Bring clean, ﬂat, rubber-soled shoes (sneakers), a warm sweater
and gloves. All sessions located at the Rochester Curling club, 71
Deep Rock Rd., Rochester, 14624. Curling will continue in the
