Yep – we have wheelchair curling and would love to have you curl with us!
Our teams are made up of a complete mixture of wheelchair curlers, slide curlers (traditional style delivery) and stick curlers (curlers who use a delivery cue instead of sliding out of the hack).
So come on out and join us – it’s really fun!!
Matt, who is a Disability Advocate for UPMC, is a curler and member of several leagues.
In this October 2010 Allegheny West Magazine article, he cites curling as a great sport for keeping in shape – on the ice and in a wheelchair!
Thanks for letting everyone know about our sport!!
PS the Pittsburgh Curling Club currently has 2 wheelchair curlers as members – and we’re looking for more! Let us know if you’re interested!
