Curling, is a Sport of Scottish origin in which players slide stones on a sheet of ice towards a target area which is segmented into four concentric circles. So a bit like bowls but on ice. Recently Lacoste Fragrances invited me and some other bloggers down to England’s only Curling rink in Kent to give curling a bash.
Having only recently recovered from two fractured elbows I was a little wary of this and had visions of falling over but when we got there I found out we don’t actually wear skates when curling you just wear special trainers , they are actually really easy to walk on the ice once you get used to it.
While I may not be joining the Olympic team any time soon the two hours we were there whizzed by, Curling was so much fun, and really isn’t as easy as it looks, even if you push your stone at the right speed the other teams job is to brush the ice in front of your stone and make it over shoot the target which we had lots of fun trying!
