Curling is considered a gentleman’s sport because all curlers should have good etiquette.
A few things will make your curling experience more enjoyable.
- Always shake hands to start and end a game
- Mark up the score immediately on completion of an end
- When you are not delivering a stone stand to the side of the sheets between the hog lines
- Be as still and quiet as possible while the opposition is delivering a stone. The opposition should do the same for you.
- Keep your equipment to the back of the backboards so no one trips over it
- When opposing team is delivering, only the skip and third should be behind the opposing skip watching the rock.
- Ensure curling equipment is clean to prevent debris from falling on the ice surface.
- Avoid standing in front of a opposing players shot after he has thrown.
