Beyond the obvious difference, a two-person team versus a four-person team, the core elements of the game itself remain intact in the Doubles game. Teams can be mixed, or of the same gender, young or mature curlers. Your club does not require special equipment or ice preparation, although the game is more fun on ice that curls. Curlers of all skill level can play. With only six stones, eight ends and two players, games are fast-paced and have lots of stones in play!
