Tournament Format

  • Dates
    The tournament will run on Sunday evening 5 June and Monday morning 6 June of Queen's Birthday Weekend.
    All players are requested to assist with ice setup from 4:20pm on Sunday, and the first round will start as soon as the ice is ready.
  • Teams
    Teams are 2 males and 2 females, playing alternately (i.e. M-F-M-F or F-M-F-M). You may change from one configuration to the other and/or change playing order between games.
    If a team is forced to continue playing with only three players they must continue to play alternately (M-F-M or F-M-F).
    The Skip and Vice-Skip can be anyone in the team, but they must be from opposite genders. Refer to WCF Rules of Curling October 2014
  • Brooms
    NZCA has confirmed that WCF's current brooms regulations will apply.
  • Pools
    Teams are in two pools of three and three 6-end pool rounds will be played on Sunday evening.
    Teams in Pool A will play the three teams in Pool B and vice versa.
    There will be no extra end to break a draw. Teams will score 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss
    Teams will toss a coin for hammer and rock colour.
    As time is restricted, pre-game practice is limited to players throwing one rock up and then back to the home end.
  • Draw Shot
    All players in each team will throw one draw shot during the round robin. After Rounds 1 and 2, one player from each team will throw one stone each. After the 3rd Round, if DSD is likely to be required then the remaining 2 players in each team will throw one stone each.
    These will be measured and recorded, and the worst result of each team's total stones will be discarded before calculating the team's average draw shot distance.
    The average DSD will be used only to rank teams in each pool with the same total points.
  • Playoffs
    Two playoff rounds will be played on Monday morning.
    The top two teams in each pool will play in 8-end championship semi-finals against each other (A1 v A2, B1 v B2) with the higher-ranked team having hammer in the first end and the lower-ranked choice of stone colour.
    The third-ranked team in each pool will pay a 6-end 5th/6th playoff (A3 v B3) in the finals round.
    The championship final will be 8 ends, all other final round games 6 ends.
    If one team in each final/playoff had a higher pool ranking they will have hammer in the first end and the other team choice of stone colour, otherwise teams will toss a coin for hammer and stone colour.
    All playoff games will have an extra end if required to break a draw.
  • Meals and Breaks
    We hope to have at least a 10-15 minute break between games on Sunday evening, and to have light snacks available, but players should ensure they have something for themselves.
    A light breakfast will be provided between the semi-final and finals on Monday morning. Please advise any dietary requirements ASAP to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


  • The entry fee will be $360 per team. A deposit of $200 per team (or $50 per person) must be paid at the time of entry. This will be refunded in full if you wish to enter as an individual but we cannot find you a team.
  • Payments to Auckland Curling's Westpac account 03-1564-0052855-00 should reference "NZM4s" and your name(s) or the team skip's name.
  • Player eligibility and playing conditions are as set down in the New Zealand Curling Association Inc Competitions Procedures Manual and the WCF Rules of Curling. To be eligible to enter, these essentially say that you must be a current or life member of a NZ curling club, a life member of the NZCA, or you must pay a tournament levy to NZCA as well as your tournament entry fee.
