Curling Tours announced
Curl BC is excited to announce the tentative dates for the 2021-22 BC Men’s and Women’s Curling Tours and BC Junior Curling Tour events.
These events have proven to both be a fantastic training ground for competitive teams to hone their skills against BC’s best, and provide teams an opportunity to qualify directly for the BC championships.
Registration for the BC Curling Tours will open June 1, 2021. Event organizers will begin to take entries for tour events over the next few weeks.
Competitions Manager Will Sutton said: “Curl BC would like to thank all clubs who are planning to host an event and thank Tour Coordinator Daniel Wenzek for his work over the past few months.”

Sutton added: “As excited as we are about seeing a return to competitive curling in the fall, there are still some remaining unknowns about what the return to curling may look like in the upcoming season. We expect some of the modified rules for four-person curling, like the one-sweeper rule and physical distancing markers on the ice to still be in effect for the start of the 2021-22 season.”
