The curling stick has been described as the “magic wand” of curling as it is enabling many 50-plus curlers to substantially extend the years they can continue to enjoy their curling experience.
The stick is basically just an extension of the arm and allows the curler to make delicate draw shots and dynamite take outs in the standing position. The rules of the game are the same and the enjoyment of the game is enhanced as the fear of injury is greatly reduced.
It’s a safe way to curl as grippers are worn on both feet at all times and the stick is the answer for those with challenging knee, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip and ankle issues.
In the 50+ Curling League, over half of the curlers are now using the stick for their delivery. People are curling now that haven’t curled for years and appreciating the opportunity to get back in the game. “It really is a magic wand!” one curler said.
Drop by the curling club, enjoy a coffee and see the magic wand in action as the 50+ Curlers compete on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. New members and spares are always welcome in the 50+ Curling League.
