|Curling was introduced by Scottish gold miners with the first reported game in the Maniototo,
Central Otago on 6 July 1878.
The long, cold winters made outdoor work difficult and curling provided a way to pass the time.
Rinks were constructed on natural ice to play this traditional game.
The long history of curling in New Zealand makes it one of the oldest winter sporting activities in the country.
