For those not familiar, curling is a sport in which two teams, each with four players, slide polished granite stones across a sheet of ice toward a target area that’s segmented into four concentric circles. The path of the stone can be guided by two sweepers with brooms who accompany it as it slides down the ice. Given the strategy and teamwork that go into this curling has also been referred to as “chess on ice.” The Penn Club indicates curling lessons were a big success the last time they did this and hope to perhaps turn it into an All-Ivy competition one day.
