Fit & Fun

Curling slides back into the spotlight with the Winter Olympics and Seattle’s Granite Curling Club lets you watch it up close and then give it a whirl.

The best young curlers in the United States are here until Saturday, competing at the club in the 2014 USA Curling Junior National Championship. The winning teams will represent the U.S. at the 2014 World Junior Championships in Switzerland.

And the club, at 1440 N. 128th St. in North Seattle, also offers open houses at which you can learn the basics of the sport and test your accuracy and sweeping skills. The next ones are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Feb. 15, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 16.

More more information on the tourney and open houses, see: www.curlingseattle.org

The club has operated in its present facility since 1961, and has been the home to more national championship teams (46) than any other in the U.S.
