Disability Programmes

Wheelchair Curling Sessions

Fortnightly wheelchair curling sessions are now on at Murrayfield Curling Rink. Sessions are open to anyone with a physical disability who uses a wheelchair for sport and is at lesat 14 years old. You must have your own wheelchair to participate but please note this does not need to be a sports chair.

All equipment for curling will be supplied. Sessions are £5 each and your first session is free. If you are attending regularly, you will be asked to become a member of Edinburgh Curling Club.

Please contact Dave Carr for information on joining the Wheelies.

 


BSL/Deaf-Friendly Sessions

This past season we held our first sessions designed specifically for participants with vision impairments. If you would like to join a session next season, please email please contact Helen Kallow, Scottish Curling Disability Development Officer, as she will be gauging interest and scheduling sessions at Murrayfield.

Read about the first BSL Try Curling session on the Scottish Curling website.


Bringing a Group

If you would like to bring a group with specific needs to the curling rink, please contact the office for guidance. We can accommodate a wide range of ability levels, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Helen Kallow at Scottish Curling is also a great resource for understanding how curling can help promote an active lifestyle through a variety of adaptive programmes.
