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.
