What did the sport of curling originate?

The origin of curling traces back to 16th century Scotland, where the sport was played on frozen ponds and lochs. The first recorded match took place around 1541: a Scottish notary recorded a challenge between a monk at Paisley Abbey and a relative of the abbott.

Has curling always been 10 ends?

Following the first Brier in 1927, it was Saskatchewan’s Oswald Barkwell who suggested the games be reduced from 14 ends to 12. The change was made the following year. Forty-nine years later, at the Brier in Montreal, games were shortened to 10 ends for the Canadian Championship.

What do they yell during curling?

A “Clean!” yell means put a brush on the ice but apply no pressure. This will clear the ice so the stone can glide more easily. There’s no regulation for the shouts, though—curler Erika Brown says she shouts “Right off!” and “Whoa!” to get her teammates to stop sweeping.
