The event, which is annually staged in Inverness, draws top wheelchair curling teams from across Scotland and other parts of the UK.

This year's competition was due to take place at the end of the October, but has been scrapped as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Organiser Mo Simpson said it is hoped the event will return in 2021.

"In light of the current Covid-19 situation, the organising committee have taken the decision to cancel the ninth Highland Wheelchair Curling Competition due to take place at the end of October," said Simpson.

"We know that people will be disappointed, but hopefully we will be able to hold the competition next year, if the situation changes."
