Wheelchair Curling Ranking

In February 2013, the World Curling Federation released the first World Wheelchair Curling Ranking.

This was updated following the World Wheelchair Curling Qualification event in November 2014.

The ranking is based on exactly the same principles as the WCF men's and women's ranking.

Points are assigned to WCF Member Associations according to their team’s final ranking at the World Wheelchair Curling Championship, the World Wheelchair Curling Championship qualification event and the Paralympic Winter Games.

Points will only be assigned once per season to WCF Member Associations qualifying out of the qualification event for the world championship and are assigned on a percentage-scaled basis for placement at Events covering six curling seasons.

Five seasons back, points count for 20%, four seasons = 30%, three seasons = 40%, two seasons = 60%, one season back counts for 80% and actual season is 100%.

At the World Wheelchair Curling Championship, teams get the following points: 1st: 240 / 2nd: 200 / 3rd 180 until 10th: 70 points. Finishes at the Paralympic Winter Games count for double points: 1st: 480 etc.
