Now my uni is offering a Curling-course for beginners, and I'm considering to try it out.
So I would like to ask those who play or have played Curling: Is it fun ? (it probably is for you, or else you wouldn't do it, duh!)
And how long does it take until you can play some decent stones ?

Curling is damn fun! :yippee:
I've only curled a handful of times in my life and I still suck so it takes longer to become good at it ;)
btw, I hear cdpoulin is an avid curler :)

I am :D:D:D!
I love curling..I actually played this morning...The other team was way bhetter but we manged to lose 6-4 which we are very proud of...Especially since the 4 points come from the same inning...
If you really like watching curling, youll love playing it...But of course it takes practice..so at first youll be able to of coarse do a good stones, but you can really strat to play better when you got the slide perfectly...that takes some praactice and my needs were blue for a few weeks ;)
But Im sure youll enjoy it...:D!

How can you compete with a sport that has men and women yelling 'HARD HARD HARD' as they hurl heavy stones to the other end:o :worship:

isn't curling Canuck slang for "is this a real sport" :p ;) ?
anyway, I love a man who knows how to sweep the floor :hearts:

Well aside from TV, I've never see anyone else playing it.
I wonder if it got its start from boring house wives? It has to originate from sweeping the floor, right? :confused: :scratch:

It started in Bonnie Scotland with real brooms and real rocks being flung across frozen ponds.
Yes, it was first a MEN'S sport :o
It may have started in Scotland, but it's an institution in Canada :eek:

I knew once again that just a thread saying curling in its name would bring people saying it is not a real sport...
All I can say to you is that I remember when I wake up the moring after a game...And yes I am fit I am a tennis player 2-3 times per week competively...But it is reallly really tough...
