The Winter Olympics are over — but there's good news for curling fans. You don't have to wait four years to enjoy more thrilling curling action.
The Granite Curling Club in Seattle's Bitter Lake neighborhood hosts league play and will teach you how to throw stones, sweep and score like the pros.
But there is a learning curve.
“When you watch it, it looks really easy," said Jessica Schultz, an instructor at Granite Curling. "And then you come out and try it and you’re like — oh, that’s a lot harder than I thought it was."
We are very excited to announce the launch of a new program for club members to buy Granite Curling Club merchandise. We have partnered with Kotis, a local Seattle company, to create a website for you to be able to purchase items online at http://kotisibuy.com/granitecurlingclub. We have a variety of shirts, jackets, hats, and other items, embroidered and screen-printed, in men’s and women’s sizes, and at a variety of price points.
The Sunday Seattle Times featured the club in "Good manners meet ‘weird physics’ at North Seattle’s Granite Curling Club."
In the 2018 USA Curling Club National Championships on Saturday at the Brainerd Lakes Curling Club in Brainerd, Minn, Lyle Sieg (Blaine, Wash.) and his Granite Curling Club teammates Sam Galey (Seattle), Matt Birklid (Seattle), and Steve Lundeen (Seattle) defeated Bill Stopera of New York’s Ardsley Curling Club, 5-2.
