With Curly in your pocket, you'll never get your saltos and somersaults, finns and 49ers or skeets and traps mixed up again. All those fouls and disqualifications will seem a doodle. Curly answers the questions you've always wondered about but have never asked, like 'what happens if a pole vault snaps?' or 'how many cups of tea can you fit in a swimming pool?' She may seem silly at times, but Curly knows the rules, and is dedicated to spreading the love of sport.

To use Curly's guide, swipe through the cards to find the sport you're looking for. With one tap the card will turn over to reveal the complete rules, told simply with easy-to-understand illustrations and fascinating, funny, sharable facts.
