    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Hollywood Curling expecting record attendance for public curling lessons this winter

    By Liza Beres January 24, 2014

    Hollywood, CA – Hollywood Curling is offering numerous public curling lessons, and expects sell out crowds and record attendance to upcoming events, boosted by the upcoming Winter Olympic games from Sochi, Russia.
    Hollywood Curling offers multiple open houses and clinics throughout the year. The public is invited to attend a Learn to Curl event, where they will learn the basics on how to deliver a stone, how and why sweeping is necessary, and the basic terminology and scoring of the game. Beginners are then encouraged to join a beginner league to put their new found skills to work, and to see for themselves why curling is one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
    An Open House will be held on Sunday, February 16th, 2014 from 12:30p-4:00p at the LA Kings Valley Ice Center, 8750 Van Nuys Blvd, Panorama City, CA. The public is invited to drop in to learn more about the sport and Hollywood Curling. $5 per person.

    Learn to Curl events are scheduled for the following evenings at the LA Kings Valley Ice Center: Feb. 14, Feb. 21, Feb. 23, Feb. 28. Additional events will be scheduled at Ice Station Valencia the weekend of Feb. 7-8. Information is frequently updated on the club’s website.

    Advance registration and payment is required for all events. Learn to Curl events are $20 for adults, $15 for juniors (under 21). Registration information can be found at www.Hollywoodcurling.org .

    About Hollywood Curling

Their goal is to offer the game of curling to the local community, to foster the social and competitive spirit of the sport, and to teach and develop curlers to compete at a local, national and international level.

    In addition to public Learn to Curl events, Hollywood Curling also strives to accommodate corporate events, private parties, and junior summer camps.

    About the sport of Curling

    The popular sport of curling, a game in which 42 pound granite stones are hurled down a 150 foot sheet of ice at a central target while teammates use brushes or brooms to sweep the ice in the path of the stone, has seen a tremendous increase in popularity in the U.S. in the past decade. Owing large in part to the televised coverage during the Winter Olympics in Torino in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010, Americans have been flocking to the sport with intrigue and fascination. The sport has seen explosive expansion in recent years, particularly in the area of arena clubs, who share the ice with hockey players and figure skaters, like Hollywood Curling.
