World Wheels

Play at the World Wheelchair Curling Championship begins today in Prague. The Scottish team (see here) had a first round bye and, as I write this are up against Russia in their first match..... and are well down.

The full draw is here. The results are here. And there are reports on the Royal Club website here, just scroll to the bottom of the introductory piece.

I found the image above, of the opening stone being played in the super four sheet rink in Roztyly, a suburb of Prague, on these pages, linked from the official site, here.

Our own Ian Addison is chief umpire for the event, and Anne Malcolm is also on the umpiring team.

Those who follow wheelchair curling will already know that Eric Eales' Wheelchair Curling Blog is the place to keep yourself updated with what's happening in the sport.
