Print Story | Email Story
WOBURN, Mass. –The Bay State Games has added curling to its 2018 winter program.
Curling has gained popularity since the sport was reestablished consistently in the Olympic Games in 1998, after being first debuted in the 1924 Olympics.
As an exhibition sport in 2018, the Bay State Winter Games competition will be comprised of eight teams from curling clubs across Massachusetts. When curling is incorporated into the regular Bay State Winter Games’ program in the 2019 games, the competition will be opened up to the general public as well as clubs from the Northeastern United States.
“We are extremely excited to add curling to the 2018 games,” said Pete Leclerc, the organization’s director of sport and operations. “There are over 1,000 registered curlers in Massachusetts and over 20,000 in the United States. We wanted to provide an opportunity for them to showcase curling along with the well established Bay State Winter sports. I can’t wait to see it this year and then open curling up to the general public to compete in the 2019 games.”
The Curling competition will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Boys & Girls Club in Pittsfield. Spectators are encouraged to come, enjoy the competition, and learn more about curling.
