Backyard curling

I've always wanted to create my own backyard curling rink. The weather in southern Ontario is unpredictable, but with some extra time and effort it can be done.

Here's a news report out of Cleveland about a guy who has built a backyard curling rink for the past three years. Looks like a lot of fun.


I've heard of people building outdoor rinks before and have seen outdoor bonspiels such as the Ironman Outdoor Curling Bonspiel held annual in Winnipeg on the  on the Assininoine River.

There are a variety of outdoor bonspiels. Taking part in one is on my curling bucket list.

Here's a link on how to build an outdoor rink. A lot of good tips.


If anyone has pictures of outdoor curling, pass them on our way and we will feature the best ones.
