European Curling Championships

The European Curling Championships is an international tournament for men and women national curling teams. It takes place annually under the aegis of the European Curling Federation (ECF) and World Curling Federation (WCF). The essence of the game is that players from two teams take turns sliding heavy stones, also called rocks, across the ice curling sheet toward the house, a circular target marked on the ice. There are 4 players in each team.
