Origin of curling

Curling, which was named after the curling (rotating) motion of the stone, is known worldwide as a winter sport but it first originated from a European game in which players threw stones on ice at a pond or river. In Scotland, where the sport was invented, a curling stone inscribed with the date 1511 is preserved, showing the 500 years of history of this winter sport.

Curling in the world

It first became an official event since the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano. Based on scores from world championships during three years until the previous year of the Olympics, male and female teams from 12 countries compete in the Olympics. Today, in Canada, curling is popular as a national sport (TV ratings around 13%) and the number of curling players and amateurs is estimated at 2 million.

Curling in Korea

Curling was adopted in Korea with the foundation of Korea Curling Federation in 1994. South Korea held its first Pacific-Asia Curling Championships in 2001, and again in 2010 in Uiseong, Gyeongsangbukdo. There are 17 local branches, Korea Middle and High School Curling Federation, Korea Elementary School Curling Federation, Korea Women's Curling Federation in Korea, and the curling population is currently estimated at 2,000, which is increasing continuously.

Customer Testimonails

It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the 26th edition of the Pacific-Asia Curling Championships, which will return to Korea – the 2018 Olympic Winter Games host nation – for the fourth time In 2010 Uiseong put on an excellent event and it will be a pleasure to return there, for what I’m sure will be another first-class championship. The teams in our Pacific-Asia zone will be honoured to be a part of this event in Uiseong as they strive to win, not only the medals on offer but, qualification to our 2017 World Women’s Championship in Beijing, China and our 2017 World Men’s Championship in Edmonton, Canada where Olympic Winter Games qualification points will be earned. I know that for each team playing here will be an unforgettable experience and I know the organisers will do their utmost to put on an outstanding event, whilst also embracing the true ‘Spirit of Curling’ for which our sport is renowned. I’m sure that everyone in Uiseong is looking forward to welcoming the teams and supporters from our Pacific-Asia zone to the city.
