The country’s best women’s curling teams will not only be chasing a Canadian championship, they’ll also be playing under a new format at the 2018 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Penticton, B.C.
The Canadian women’s curling championship is scheduled for Jan. 27-Feb. 4 at the South Okanagan Events Centre, and will feature, for the first time, a 16-team field.
The action off the ice in Penticton in 2018 will be just as hot, as the rollicking party known as the HeartStop Lounge will be right next door to the arena at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. Along with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the athletes, the HeartStop Lounge will offer live music, dancing, drinks, and food, as well as interactive activities for the entire family.
All 14 Member Associations (10 provinces, three territories and Northern Ontario) will be represented in the main field in Penticton, as the pre-qualifying process will end at the 2017 Scotties in St. Catharines. Additionally, the defending champion Team Canada will be in the field, while the process to determine the 16th entry will be decided at a later date.
The 16 teams will be split into two pools for the first phase of round-robin play, with the top four teams from each pool then advancing to a crossover championship pool. From there, four teams will go into the familiar Page playoff round.
The winning team at the 2018 Scotties will represent Canada at the 2018 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship in North Bay, Ont.
