Curling Challenge

  • 4 players per team
    All teams consisting of four players can register for the curling championship. It doesn't matter whether the teams are made up of work or club colleagues, friends or family members. The only thing each team should think of is a suitable name.
  • Registration for the qualifying round
    The preliminary rounds are played without an opposing team and can be played on a date of your choice. However, prior notification must be made by calling 03731 / 363225 that a team wishes to take part in the competition within the framework of their rented time on the curling rink, as a referee must be provided..
  • Spielregeln

    The four players of a team each have three attempts to place an ice stick as close as possible to the centre of the 3.5 x 2 metre target area (house). The further the ice stick is from the target, the more minus points are recorded. These minus points correspond to the distance of the ice stick to the centre of the house in centimetres. Important: The centimetres are always rounded up! At the end, all 12 attempts are summed up as a team score.
  • Eight teams in the final
    The eight best teams with the fewest points qualify for the final. The teams will then compete against each other with their four players in the traditional form of curling.The date will be announced in good time.
