Line Distances

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

Each hog line is located 21 feet away from its respective tee line. The hog lines are located 72 feet away from each other.

Backline and Tee Line Distances

The tee line and backline are 6 feet away from each other.

Backline and Hack Distances

The backline and hack are also 6 feet away from each other.

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.
