Welcome to the Hong Kong Curling Association!
You may have come across curling on TV and wondered why people were sliding, sweeping and shouting while they were playing. I was one of those people mesmerized by the sport while watching it on television during the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, in 2014.
The Hong Kong Curling Association (HKCuA) was born out of this fascination. While HKCuA may have a relatively short history compared to the 480 years old sport, we have reached many milestones and achieved notable results in only a few years.
Often, we did so despite significant challenges in terms of time, effort and money. Despite limited resources, we are always guided by the positive spirit of curling. We also hope that you will join us as a player, volunteer, supporter or simply as a spectator, and share the beauty of this precision sport which requires a unique combination of strength, teamwork, and strategy. With your support, the future of curling in Hong Kong can only be bright.
