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 regular 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.
