How the Norfolk Curling Club Makes Ice

February 20, 2021 - February 28, 2022

Free

Nothing is more essential to the sport of curling than ice, and having just the right ice makes the experience better. This video is a brief overview of the painstaking process of making ice at the Norfolk Curling Club. Unlike your community skating rink, it takes many days, numerous volunteers and an intense focus on the quality and texture of the ice. Watch as the club transforms a bare concrete slab into a curling sheet by combining multiple layers of ice, paint and artwork, and finish by applying the perfect texture to the surface of the sheet.

If you’re a newcomer to curling, we suggest you visit the Curling Club’s website, especially the page that a has a 2-minute guide to the sport.
