#CrokicurlYXE - Location, Rules, and Tournament Info

The Broadway District is pleased to announce that once again, Crokicurl is coming to Broadway in time for Winterruption (Jan 23rd-26th)! The ice will be in place until February 25th (Weather premitting). We encourage all YXE residents to check it out and play a game of this new winter activity.

THE GAME

Crokicurl is the brainchild of Public City Architecture, and combines two iconic Canadian pastimes: crokinole and curling, to become an exciting new outdoor sport for all ages. It is played by two teams made up of 1 to 4 players who will slide junior curling rocks or frozen milk jugs towards the centre of the ice. The object of the game is to accumulate the most points through shooting the rock into the centre button and positioning the rocks on the playing surface so they remain within the highest scoring circle at the end of the round.

 

THE PLAYING AREA 

The playing area is located beside the Broadway Roastery (614 Broadway Avenue) — and will be available for use starting Friday, January 25th, 2018. It is free to use for ALL Saskatoon residents.

Curling rocks are available:

Weekdays – 9AM-9PM (private bookings) 

Weekends – 9AM-9PM (First come, first serve) 

To ensure availability of curling rocks at a certain time during the weekdays, please make a booking by emailing hello@broadwayyxe.com with a date and time.
