22 Jul 2019 – The new Wendy Becker Trophy for Sportsmanship was awarded for the first time at the conclusion of the New Zealand Men's and Women's Championships earlier this month, to Warren Dobson and Jennifer Stewart.
Peter Becker presented the half-curling stone trophy in memory of his late wife, who passed away three years ago. Wendy is fondly remembered by all who knew her both for her sportsmanship on the ice, and for her warmth, hospitality and generosity to the local, national and international curling community when off the ice.
The inaugural winners were selected by their fellow curlers at the NZ Championships.
The Australian Curling Federation also honours Wendy's memory with their annual Wendy Becker Memorial Sportsmanship Award.
