Friday Ladies League Ladies curling has returned to our club. Teams will compete together throughout the curling season.

Mini-Major Pharmacy Doubles Stick Curling LeagueThe Friday Mixed Stick Curling League is designed for any curlers who wish to enjoy the sport of curling without having to master the art of the sliding delivery. It’s a great game where a “curling stick” is used to deliver the rocks from one end of the rink to the other, and sweeping is eliminated between the hog lines. Each person on the 2 curler team alternates between skipping one end and delivering rocks on the alternate ends, making for an exciting game that counts on accurate delivery and good strategies. This league allows curlers to enjoy the sport of curling in a format that eliminates mobility issues, and keeps both curlers more involved in the game at all times since they share the position of “skip” throughout the game. As this is a new league this year for a game that is rapidly growing in popularity across Ontario, we can say that the league will proceed on Fridays, during the day, at 1:00 pm and 2:15 pm. Once we see how many of our members will be participating in this 2 person team League, we may have 3 draws for this curling season. The first draw will consist of 4 games with team members picked Jitney style before the games to encourage parity. The next 2 draws will feature teams submitted by the curlers themselves, and may be slightly more competitive in nature. At the end of the third draw, playoffs will be held, and League champions will be crowned.
