Tournament Format

  • Dates
    The tournament will run on Sunday evening 31 May and Monday morning 1 June of Queen's Birthday Weekend 2015.
    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
  • Pools
    Teams are in two pools of four and three 6-end pool games will be played on Sunday evening.
    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
    After each pool game, 2 players will throw one stone each – one with clockwise rotation, one anti-clockwise.
    These will be measured and recorded, and the worst result of each team's total of 6 stones (3 games, 2 per game) will be discarded before calculating the team's average draw shot distance.
    The average DSD will be used to rank teams in each pool with the same total points
    All players in a team must play at least one draw shot during the pool rounds. No player may play more than two.
  • 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 (A1 v B2, B1 v A2) with the higher-ranked team having hammer in the first end and the lower-ranked choice of stone colour.
    The bottom two teams in each pool will play in 6-end consolation semi-finals (A3vB4, B3vA4).
    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.
