Curling

This section contains information on local adapted activities and inclusive sports

Wheelchair curling provides those with physical impairments the opportunity to curl with many similarities to the Olympic sport. Wheelchair curling is a team sport that tests the strategy and precision of the athletes. Wheelchair curling is played on a long sheet of ice where curling stones are pushed using a delivery stick toward the target at the end of the ice. The main difference between curling and wheelchair curling is there are no teammates sweeping the ice in wheelchair curling which make precision more difficult.
