13 Mar 2020 – New Zealand Curling was advised last month that the Winter Games NZ would no longer include curling.
"The Winter Games NZ Board cited lack of funding as the main reason," said NZ Curling Chairman Sam Inder. "They will now concentrate their resources on the Snow Sports in Queenstown and Wanaka."
"We've enjoyed the relationship we've had with the Games since it started in 2009," he continued, "but we understand their position. Needless to say though, we're disappointed and the loss of this premier international event is a major blow for NZ Curling."
