# Curling Sheet Dimensions

## Sheet Dimensions

All curling sheets are between 144 to 150 feet long, and 14 feet, 2 inches to 15 feet wide.

## 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.

## 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 12 Foot is the largest circle in the house. The diameter of the 12 Foot is 12 feet.

## The 8 Foot Dimensions

The 8 Foot is the second largest circle in the house. The diameter of the 8 Foot is eight feet.

## The 4 Foot Dimensions

The 4 Foot is the third largest circle in the house. The diameter of the 4 Foot is four feet.

## The Button Dimensions

The button is the smallest circle in the house. The diameter of the button is one foot. The button is never referred to as the 1 Foot.
