2 Person Stick Curling Rules, Wheelchair

1. Each team is comprised of two Curlers.  With no sweeping or brushing, a four-member team would often have two people inactive. This way, everyone is always occupied, either delivering or skipping. Teams are easier to form and coordinate.

2. One member of each team stays at each end of the rink, and must not cross center ice (except as provided for in Rule 9).  This reduces movement up and down the ice, and increases the pace of the game. It also means responsibilities are equally shared by the two team members, and provides variety for each player.

3. No sweeping/brushing.

4. Each stone must be delivered by hand or with a curling / delivery stick, from a sitting (in a wheelchair) position.

5. All stones must be released with in 0.457m (18in) from the centre line and before the stone reaches the hog line.  

6. The two delivering Curlers alternately deliver six stones each per end, while their teammates skip that end. Then roles are reversed.  Each player is always occupied, doing something interesting. 18 stones are delivered per person each game, compared to 16 (8 ends) or 20 (10 ends) in regular curling.

7. The first three stones delivered in an end may not be removed from play before delivery of the fourth stone of that end. If that happens, the delivered stone is removed from play and all other stones are returned to their original position.  With fewer stones used, and fewer ends, the stick game tends to be more defensive than the regular game. This rule makes the game offensive, thus more interesting for competitors and fans. The “in play area” is the area from the hog line to the back line.

8. Each team may call a maximum of two one minute time outs (and meet at center ice) during a game. During an extra end, one additional time out is allowed. Each a time out is called, the opposing team may consult near center ice at the same time.   This allows for team member consultation during a game.

9. All games are six ends. In case of a tie, an extra end is played, with each player delivering 3 stones (skips and deliverers exchange roles at the midpoint of an extra end without moving the delivered stones).  In the event the extra end is a blank, another end is played using the extra end format.

10. Other rules and etiquette of regular curling apply.  The good parts of the regular game are retained!  It is not a rule but  participants  should be advised that one hour is sufficient to play the game.   In addition it should  be confirmed whether the allocated time of one hour will include the time taken for time outs.
