Curling Canada announced changes to qualification trials for four-player and mixed doubles earlier this month.
With the COVID-19 pandemic cancelling many competitive curling events, which were slated to help determine the teams, the revised criteria allows a broader group to be in the mix for the 2022 Winter Games. Nine women’s and nine men’s teams will compete at the four-player trials, while 16 tams will compete at the mixed doubles trials.
The winners of the 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts and the Tim Hortons Brier will qualify for the trials. Other teams, who have yet to qualify, will have an opportunity during pre-tournament events throughout the fall.
The Tim Hortons Curling Trials will be November 20-28 at the SaskTel Centre in Saskatoon for four-player and December 28 – January 2 for mixed-doubles (host city yet to be determined).
