23 Jun 2015 – World-class Canadian and American Mixed Doubles curling teams will compete for the first time at the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ 2015, raising the elite competition at Naseby's Maniototo Curling international rink to a new level and creating even more focus for the event, following its inclusion in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea.

The recent decision by the International Olympic Committee to debut Curling Mixed Doubles at the PyeongChang Olympics is a game-changer for the sport and the New Zealand Curling Association and Winter Games NZ are excited at the announcement which comes on the eve of the Games.

10 Jun 2014 – New Zealand’s curlers are delighted to learn that the International Olympic Committee has confirmed the addition of Mixed Doubles Curling to the Winter Olympic programme for the 2018 Games at PyeongChang in Korea.

“This is wonderful news for the sport of curling in general, and for New Zealand Curling in particular,” said Sam Inder, Chairman of the New Zealand Curling Association. “Mixed Doubles will be the third curling event to become a Winter Olympic sport, and its inclusion is due recognition that curling is now the fastest growing winter sport in the world.”
