Curling Sheet Dimensions
All curling sheets are between 144 to 150 feet long, and 14 feet, 2 inches to 15 feet wide.
Now, we will learn about the different distances between lines on a curling sheet. Knowing where these lines are will help you when you are delivering a stone, or determining how far a stone will glide down the sheet.
REMEMBER: A curling sheet is symmetric. This means that the distances we will be talking about hold true for both sides of the curling sheet.
Hog Line Distances
Backline and Tee Line Distances
Backline and Hack Distances
Hack and Board Distances
Just like the previous two, the hack and board are located 6 feet away from each other. In some cases, this distance can be as small as 4 feet. This is why the length of a curling sheet varies between 144-150 feet.
Dimensions of the House
As we discussed in Curling Sheet Parts, the house is the set of concentric circles located on both sides of a curling sheet. The circles in the house have specific dimensions. Easily enough, the names of each circle directly relate to their dimension.
The Pin Dimensions
The pin is the exact center of the house. The rest of the dimensions of the house are taken with respect to this location.
The 12 Foot Dimensions
The 8 Foot Dimensions
The 4 Foot Dimensions
The Button Dimensions
