Doubles Curling is an important new addition to the sport of curling. It’s being supported in the highest levels of competitive curling, as there are already Canadian and world championship competitions in Doubles Curling. Doubles Curling allows curlers to explore curling skill and strategy in a different context.
Doubles curling is for beginners and advanced players alike. Beginners are on more equal footing with advanced curlers, since the strategy in doubles is different than the traditional four- person game. Beginners and advanced curlers alike are exposed to all aspects of the game, and both players must take an active role in strategizing and shot-making.
The time commitment for a doubles game is smaller: games take only about an hour, as opposed to two for a regular four-person game. JP registers doubles curling in smaller blocks to further help with the time commitment.
This year we will offer doubles in a one-day bonspiel format. We have two dates scheduled for doubles: Saturday November 17, 2018 and Saturday January 12, 2019. We can accept up to 24 teams and will run the event with as few as 6 teams. The cost is $80.00 per team, guaranteed 3 games (maybe more) and lunch will be included. The two dates are separate events, not a continuing event. For more details or to register call Cathy at 780-489-6428.
