In May 2016, the North Grenville Curling Club was honoured to be selected by the World Curling Federation and Curling Canada as the testing site to resolve last year's controversy regarding the new technologies in brooms and sweeping techniques that were seriously changing the game.
The best curlers in the world met at our club to test brooms from various manufacturers under the direction of scientists from Canada's National Research Council.
Many articles were written on the event. Feel free to search the internet or click this link to learn about the testing: http://www.worldcurling.org/ss2016-update
A decision that will impact the sport around the globe is expected in September 2016.
