CTV image of visually impaired curlerTo celebrate White Cane Week (Feb 5-12, 2024), and in cooperation with the Canadian Council of the Blind BC-Yukon Division (CCB), Parksville Curling Club hosted a demonstration of blind curling by curlers from Campbell River.

The event was reported by Chek news, and their report can be seen here.

More than half of the people with sight loss never leave their homes. CCB was created by the blind themselves working to create more activities for the blind community, including regular bowling, lawn bowling, and dragon boating. Participating in sports like curling not only provides physical benefits but also fosters social connections and a sense of accomplishment.

Blind curling is a fantastic way for people with visual impairments to engage in a sport. This is an opportunity for those with sight loss to experience and enjoy the sport of curling. Instruction will be given specifically designed for each person's ability and knowledge of curling. So if you know someone that may wish to try out this sport, or if you would just like to come down and see how it works, please join us on February 5th. Hopefully, this event will inspire similar initiatives to promote inclusivity and diversity in sports.
