Having trouble finding a 4-person team? Want to try a faster paced version of curling that only needs 2 people per team? Come try our new Friday Doubles/Stick league.
This league will feature a combination of Doubles and Stick curling teams. We are still working out the details (which will depend in part on what type of teams sign up) but we anticipate having both formats playing at the same time.
Doubles (often referred to as Mixed Doubles) features 2-person teams (typically one man and one woman but we will take any pair). 2 rocks (one from each team) are pre-placed and then each team delivers 5 rocks per end.
You can either have one person holding the broom and one thrower (who sweeps their own rock) or go with a thrower and a sweeper (and no one holding the broom).
Stick curling also features 2-person teams (of any gender) and the same 6-end, 5-rock format. However, all rocks are delivered using a delivery stick and there is no sweeping before the hog line.
The rules for both formats will be posted to this page soon so you can get a better idea of what is involved.
This league will play on the Fridays when the mixed league is not curling (and there is no bonspiel or other special event). A schedule of the weeks we anticipate curling will be posted by the beginning of September (before early registration).
The costs for this league are still being determined by the board but will be posted before early registration.
