November 1, 2016

When Allison Flaxey found herself at the top of the Canadian Team Ranking System leaderboard, most people dismissed it as an early-season anomaly. But following this weekend’s Grand Slam final in Okotoks, Alta., it’s clear the Caledon, Ont., foursome is intent on staying near the top.

October 27, 2016

It’s beginning to feel a lot like curling season. The weather is cooling off, leagues across the country have started running, and the first Pinty’s Grand Slam event is under way in Okotoks, Alberta. The World Financial Group Masters brings all of the top teams together for the first time this season. Previous World Curling Tour events have had some, if not most, of the big dogs in some events, but for this one… the gang’s all here. With the WCT’s top 15 men’s and women’s teams represented, each draw has nothing but big names facing each other. The first ...

“Season of the Spare” on Tour

October 25, 2016

With all the controversy surrounding sweeping in 2015-2016, last season will go down in history as the “season of the broom.” If current trends continue, 2016-2017 might go down as the “season of the spare.” In most events this season, we’ve seen top teams in both men’s and women’s events, call on some high-profile help to fill a spot left empty by another player.

Tour action from East to West this Thanksgiving weekend

October 7, 2016

It’s not often that the curling’s top teams have to choose between two premier World Curling Tour events on the same weekend. Usually one offers a stronger field, or the opportunity for more money, or points. Such is not the case this Thanksgiving weekend as the competitive curling world is essentially split between east and west. In the east, Toronto’s Stu Sells Tankard is taking place at the High Park Curling Club in Toronto. In the west, the Direct Horizontal Drilling Fall Classic is underway in Edmonton. In each case, 24 teams are battling for a purse of $50,000, and ...

October 4, 2016

We don’t know which duo will represent Canada in Mixed Doubles at the next Olympics, but who well-known curlers just threw their name in the ring. With a win at the Canad Inns Mixed Doubles Championship in Portage-la-Prairie, Man., Ottawa’s Rachel Homan and Calgary’s John Morris earned a berth to the Mixed Doubles Trials, which will be held in January 2018. For Jeff Stoughton, head of Canada’s mixed doubles development, it was a welcome result. “We’re getting better,” he said of Canadian doubles teams. “We had two [Canadian pairs] in the semifinals, which was positive. We’re right there with the ...

September 20, 2016

If any ranking system were perfect, a tournament would always see the two highest ranked teams meet in the final. Of course, that rarely happens, especially when you have 13 of the top 15 teams in the world beating up on each other, as was the case at Cornwall, Ont.’s AMJ Campbell Shorty Jenkins Classic. And yet, when the dust settled on Sunday afternoon, World Curling Tour No. 1 Team Brad Gushue (St. John’s) was set to face No. 2 Kevin Koe (Calgary) for the championship. This time, however, the ranking wasn’t the deciding factor, as Koe took home the ...

After all the smoke had cleared at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto, one thing was clear. Team Brad Gushue of St. John’s was going home a champion and taking a big bonus cheque with him. What wasn’t clear, at first, was the fate of another Olympic champion.

April 12, 2016

There was a time when the Men’s World Championship signalled the end of the curling season. Once a winner was crowned, clubs would pull the plug on their compressors, and curlers would go outside to find something called “sunshine” and anxiously polish golf clubs until the ground thawed enough to play.
