Hollywood Curling to Host Two Valentine's Day Learn to Curl Events, Complete with Roses and Curling-Stone Chocolates
LOS ANGELES – January 5, 2017 – Looking for a unique Valentine's Day date? Why not try curling? Hollywood Curling Club, Los Angeles County's only organization dedicated to the sport, will be offering a pair of Valentine's Day-themed Learn to Curl date nights.
Registration for two includes a two-hour Learn to Curl session as well as a long-stemmed rose and handmade curling-stone chocolates. No curling experience whatsoever is required; Hollywood Curling's expert instructors will cover the basics of throwing, sweeping and strategy and get participants curling in a real game. All necessary equipment will be provided; participants just need to wear warm, comfortable clothes and flat, rubber-soled shoes.
The Learn to Curls will take place on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 10:15 PM at the Pasadena Ice Skating Center, 300 Green St. in Pasadena and Sunday, Feb. 12 at 7:45 PM at Ice Station Valencia, 27745 Smyth Dr., in Valencia. Registration for both events is available online at http://hollywoodcurling.org/learntocurl. A couples registration is $60 and includes two spaces in the Learn to Curl, a long-stemmed rose and curling-stone chocolates. (Solo registration is also available for $25 and does not include a rose or chocolates.)
Hollywood Curling also has more Learn to Curl options scheduled if Valentine's Day isn't convenient: There will be two-hour Learn to Curl sessions at the Pasadena Ice Skating Center at 10:15 PM on Jan. 7, 21 and 28, and Feb. 8, all Saturday evenings. There's also an outdoor pop-up curling session at the ice rink in Pershing Square in downtown LA on Jan. 8 at 8:30 AM. (The pop-up is a 1-hour session that costs just $5!) And there'll be even more chances to learn to curl throughout the year, with dates to be announced soon.

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 US in the past decade. Owing in large part to the televised coverage during the Winter Olympics in Torino in 2006, Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014, 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 like Hollywood Curling, which share ice with hockey players and figure skaters.
