Curling is a sport in which players slide stones across a sheet of ice towards a target area which is segmented into four rings. It is related to bowls, boule and shuffleboard. Two teams, each of four players, take turns sliding heavy, polishedgranite stones, also called "rocks", across the ice curling sheet towards the house, a circular target marked on the ice.Each team has eight stones. The purpose is to accumulate the highest score for a game.
Curling originated in the 16th century in Scotland, where games were played during winter on frozen ponds, lochs and marshes.
