HARTFORD, Vt. – Curling is a fast-growing sport in New England, but it has been played here for many, many years – it’s not just something to watch on TV. There is a very active curling club in the Upper Valley and members share their love of the game at “Learn to Curl” sessions in Hartford.

They have two sessions scheduled for the month of December: Tuesday morning, Dec. 3 at 9:30 a.m. and Saturday, Dec. 7 at 5:45 p.m. Experienced curlers will hold a short course on curling for people who have not yet played the game. The club regularly plays in White River Junction at the Barwood Arena. Many people watched the USA win gold in curling at the last Winter Olympics. Whether you watched then or not, here is your chance to find out how much fun the game can be.

Registration is required. The club provides all equipment; all you need to do is wear warm clothing, including a hat and gloves, and bring shoes with clean, non-skid soles. Register at www.uppervalleycurling.org. Space is limited, so sign up early.

For more information, please email uppervalleycurling@gmail.com. The club also has league play and drop-in curling games. The Barwood Arena is located behind Hartford High School at 45 Highland Ave.
