Summer curling clinic offered in Woodstock

Sunday, July 9, 5:45 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Upper Valley Curling is offering a Learn to Curl clinic on Sunday, July 9, 5:45-8 p.m. at the Union Arena in Woodstock. People don’t usually think of playing games on ice during July, but there’s a dedicated group of curlers in the Upper Valley who don’t care what month it is.

Do you remember watching the U.S. curling team compete at the last Winter Olympics? Did you think about trying the sport? Curling is one of the faster growing sports in the U.S. and this is the chance to see what it is all about. There are many local people in the Upper Valley who curl regularly and they want to share how much fun it is to play the game.

The clinic will start at 6 p.m. and will take about two hours. Registration is at 5:45 p.m. The clinic costs $25 per person and is open to any individual age 12 and older. The club provides all equipment needed; wear warm clothing and bring shoes with non-skid soles. Participants will start with an introduction to the concepts and rules of the game and then move onto the ice for hands-on instruction and lots of fun.

Space is limited; register in advance at

Union Arena is conveniently located on the grounds of the Woodstock Union High School on Route 4 just 1.5 miles west of Woodstock village. For more information, email
