Adaptive (Stick) curling consists of pushing granite stones down a sheet of ice from a standing or sitting (wheelchair) position using a stick. A “Stick” curling game consists of 2 teams of 2 players each, one teammate at each end of the “sheet” of ice. Teams alternately deliver 8 stones each to the target (“house”) located about 120 feet away, attempting to have the most stones closest to the center.
“Stick” curling provides an opportunity for people of all physical ability and ages to experience the excitement and challenge of the sport of curling on an equal and competitive basis in a social atmosphere.
