Wheelchair Curling

VIDEO: Without the help of team sweepers, Wheelchair Curling is more challenging than regular Bonspiel.

Making its debut at the Torino Winter Games in 2006, Wheelchair Curling is an event enjoyed by many people and requires focus and strategy. Good communication amongst team members is also very important to playing a good game and team members help each other out by holding onto the player’s wheelchair when it is their time to shoot.

This year at the Parlympic Winter Games in Vancouver, there’s a week of wheelchair curling tournaments from March 13 to 20.
