How to Get Started – Wheelchair Curling

Wheelchair curling is an adaptation of curling for athletes with a disability. It is actually very similar to able-bodied curling. The rules are close to the same, but do have differences. Wheelchair curling is played with the same rocks and on the same ice as able-bodied curling, though the rocks are delivered from a stationary wheelchair and there is no brushing. Rocks may be delivered by hand while leaning over the side of the wheelchair, or pushed by a delivery stick.

Additional educational resources are available at the WCF’s World Curling Academy.
