Get Involved – Female Focused Para Curling

February 9

Parasport Female Athlete Recruitment - Wheelchair Curling Open Try event at Preston Flower Bowl Ice Rink in lancashire

With less than two years to go until the next Winter Paralympics in Milan Cortina in 2026 British Curling has launched its first ever Paralympic Recruitment Campaign focusing solely on female recruitment UK wide.

‘Female Focus’ is part of the ongoing Paralympic Recruitment Campaign ‘It’s Time to Deliver – Push Yourself’ following the Beijing Paralympics in 2022, aimed at increasing the number of participants from across the UK on the GB Paralympic curling squad.

Wheelchair Curling requires at least one female athlete in every Paralympic curling team and with the introduction of Mixed Doubles – a discipline that requires an athlete from both genders – in the Milan Cortina 2026 programme, the sport has become more inclusive than ever before with more opportunities for athletes to get involved at the highest level of the game.

The Female Focus campaign is part of the long-term Paralympic Pathway Strategy, offering newcomers to the game the opportunity to progress as far as their potential and ambition may take them, with the latest drive encouraging more women and girls into the game to be considered for squad inclusion in the build up to Milan Cortina and beyond.

A Female Focus Wheelchair Curling Recruitment Day will take place next month at the National Curling Academy in Stirling on Friday 9th February, providing female wheelchair users aged 16+ from across the UK an on-ice taster session, as well as off-ice coaching in a games hall setting, utilising FloorCurl equipment.

The first event of its kind organised by British Curling Paralympic Pathway Manager Cheryl Lappin, is supported by our partners at UK Sport, the British Paralympic Association, Scottish Curling, the Scottish Wheelchair Curling Association and the English Curling Association.

“This event is the perfect building block for girls and women aged 16+ who are keen to try wheelchair curling in a relaxed, supportive and inclusive environment,” said Lappin.

“No experience is required, only a drive to be committed, passionate and to develop their talent within the sport of wheelchair curling.

“Follow up will include signposting opportunities onto Wheelchair Curling Clubs across the UK and for those who show talent, an opportunity to progress onto the next stage of the British Curling Paralympic Performance Pathway. I would urge any interested females to get in touch.”
