Winter Olympics Scoring in curling|tick tock news|sports news|latest news|news

The key to understanding the scoring of curling
is learning the vocabulary. The “house” is the round target, while
the “button” is the bulls-eye in the middle of the target. A match features 10 “ends” – think of
them as innings – and each team alternates throwing eight stones. In order to score a point, your stone must
come closer to the button than your opponent. If a team has two stones closer to the button,
then it gets two points – and so on. Only stones inside the house count. Only one team can score on each end. If neither team has a stone in the house,
neither team gets a point at that end. The best possible score at one end is 8-0. The team that did not score in the previous
end holds “hammer” – think of it as the bottom of an inning – and gets to deliver
the last stone.
