The athletes who use a wheelchair for daily mobility, i.e., those who are non-ambulant or can walk very short distances are eligible to participate in wheelchair curling competitions.
For wheelchair events, the sheet used is the same as curling, but the only difference is the wheelchair lines that are placed parallel to and on the opposite sides of the centerline, extending from the hog line to the outermost edge of the nearest circle at each end of the sheet.
To be eligible to play in the World Wheelchair Curling Championship (“WWCC”) and qualifying events, a player must have significant impairments in lower leg / gait function (e.g. spinal injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, double leg amputation, etc.), so that a wheelchair is used for daily mobility.
Each team is allowed to call one sixty second time-out during each game scheduled for eight ends and one sixty second time-out in each extra end.
Only the team with the stone closest to the tee gets score. The team scores one point for each stone closer to the tee than any of their opponent’s stones.
