Brooklyn Curling Club shows off sport

The Brooklyn Curling Club gave News 12 a lesson on the sport from Prospect Park.



Here's how the game works: Two teams of four launch stones onto the ice, and the curlers sweep the ice to try to control the stone's movement.



The goal is to reach the house, depicted as a circle at the end of the lane. Teams score points based on who gets their rock closest to the center.



The team with the most points after several ends -- similar to innings in baseball -- is deemed the winner.



Curling made its Olympic debut at the 1924 Chamonix Winter Games.
