Record Type: concept
curling (game) (ice sports, <ice and snow activities>, ... Physical and Mental Activities (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Game similar to lawn bowls, but played on ice, and consisting of two teams of four players, the lead, second, third, and skip. Each player slides a round stone, concave on the bottom and with a handle on the top, across a natural field or rink of ice toward the tee, or button, which is a fixed mark in the center of a circle, called the house, marked with concentric bands. The object of the game is for each side to get its stones closest to the center. A distinctive element of curling is the use of a brush, or broom, to clear the ice of debris in front of the sliding stone. The broom also provides balance for the curler during delivery of the stone and by the skip to direct aim.
