    Curling in HK?

    Does anyone know if HK has a curling club / group?

    It seems interesting, my friends and I would like to learn this game

    Cheers, Blom

    I would love to be able to Curl again after so many years away from Canada, but alas I dont know any such locations in Hong Kong.

    It would be very very expensive to set one up I think. You need rocks (expensive) but more importantly you need proper ice (very very expensive). Alas, that curling ice is hard to maintain and useless for any other use as you cant skate on it due to the pebbles, and even if you were able to, you would completely ruin the ice for curling.

    There does seem to be a couple of clubs in China:
    List of curling clubs in China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    but they are a bit far to travel for a casual game.

    Funny it was exactly 4y ago. Guess we are watching the winter games again. Count me in. That's the only chance/sport that I can make it to the olie.

    An update of sorts : I just received word that The President of the World Curling Federation is going to be in HK to launch a new club here this weekend.

    No idea where/who/how etc etc but I'm trying to find out more.

    Better get my sliders and broom out of the closet....

    HURRY HARD

    Was never a fan of curling but one of my good friends is pretty good at it. Maybe opening of a club will entice him to come visit
