New this Season, Mixed Doubles Curling!
Due to Covid 19 concerns, the Mount Washington Valley Curling Club has opted this year to forego our traditional 4 person team format and instead go with the 2 person “Mixed Doubles” format. We feel that with only 16 people on the ice instead of our usual 32, it will be much easier to comply with social distancing requirements.
The rule requiring teams to be comprised of one female and one male player will be waived, teams may be comprised of any combination.
We are really excited to introduce this format to our club this year. Mixed Doubles is a recognized format with teams competing for regional, national, and world championship titles. In 2018, Mixed Doubles became an official Olympic sport with Canada taking the gold, Switzerland the silver and Norway the bronze.
