The Polish Curling Clubs Federation have officially become the 70th Member Association of the World Curling Federation today following the conclusion of the appeal from the Polish Curling Association over their expulsion from the World Curling Federation.
The Polish Curling Clubs Federation join the World Curling Federation as a Provisional Member and will enter their first team to the World Wheelchair-B Curling Championship 2022 beginning on Saturday 5 November.
Colin Grahamslaw, Secretary General of the World Curling Federation said, “We are delighted to be able to officially welcome the Polish Curling Clubs Federation into the World Curling Federation and to have our Polish curlers back where they belong.
“It has been a long process, but we’re happy that conclusion of the procedure with CAS has given closure to the situation and allows the new Federation and the Polish curling family to return their focus to competing on the ice.”
Lukasz Janczar, President of Polish Curling Clubs Federation said, “This is the culmination of a long process, requiring years of commitment and patience from the World Curling Federation and Polish curlers. Today we celebrate the return to the family we have always been a part of. We are looking forward to our first international competition, at the same time we know that we still have much work to do with the internal situation of curling in Poland.”
