The Non-professional Curling Cup in aid of disabled children took place in Moscow on April 4 at the Moskvich Ice Palace. The event was organized with the support of the Moscow City Department of Physical Culture and Sport, the Russia Curling Association, the Moscow Curling Association and the Moskvich higher sport school.
There were ten teams of both Russian and foreign companies participating, such as the International School of Moscow, Italian Design, ConocoPhilips, the British Embassy and some others.
