Stick Curling

Did you know that stick curling has been around since the mid-1980s when it was adopted by curlers who had developed balance issues, knee, hip or back problems and found themselves having to give up the game. Stick curling enables anyone to curl as you don't have to squat down in the hack or athletically slide low to the ice to deliver a rock; you can now do it from the standing position. The curling stick simply holds on to the handle of the curling rock as you walk from the hack position on the ice out towards the hog line (the area where the rock must be released). You just push the rock in the desired direction from that standing position using the stick, hopefully with the right speed and turn on the rock, and voila, you can curl again or indeed for the very first time.
