Curling Canada outlines changes to official rules

February 03, 2023

As it has over the centuries, curling continues to evolve. While most rules changes are minor, they do affect the game and can influence play.

Recently, Curling Canada released a summary of changes from their 2018-2022 Rule Book, with the new rules taking effect in the 2022-26 Rule Book.

Some of the changes are simple clarifications—eg. the definition of a “House”—while some update actual rules of play. The sections affected are: Rules of Curling for General Play; Rules of Curling for Officiated Play; and Supplemental Rules – Mixed Doubles.
