Get into the spirit of curling

With more than 500 years of history, curling is one the world's oldest sports. This winter sport is played by more than two million people worldwide and has been an Olympic sport since 1998.

As a member of the Australian Curling Federation (ACF), Curling WA is recognised as the official state body for the sport of curling in Western Australia. Curling WA coordinates several curling leagues, familiarisation sessions, beginners’ instructions and curler development programmes in WA.

With full membership of the Australian Curling Federation, qualified members of Curling WA can take part in the national championships which are held yearly for men, women, juniors, seniors and mixed teams.

How does it work?

Curling is an exciting sport that involves two teams of four people. Each game starts with a coin flip to determine which team goes first, then the teams take turns curling eight stones down a sheet of ice. The team that has the stone closest to the centre of a bullseye wins a point, this is repeated for six to 10 rounds called Ends.

Curling stones are made from dense, polished granite. The bottom of the stone is concave so that only the outer ring, called the running band, is in contact with the ice. This reduces friction which allows the stone to slide further.


There are stones, brooms, houses and umpires who sometimes yell “woah!”. So what’s not to love?

Congrats and good luck Kim and Adrienne

We congratulate and wish Kim Irvine and Adrienne Kennedy good luck on being invited to represent Australia as members of the team to compete in the the WCF World Senior Curling Championships in Korea from 21-29 April 2023. The championships will be held in the Gangneung Curling Centre, the home of Curling for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Read of their preparation plans, travel arrangements and goals for this fantastic opportunity. Check out their bios page to read how they began curling, both at a young age. Whilst each have very different origins, both have the credentials and experience worthy of their invitation and may surprise their opposition.
