Doubles Curling is an important new addition to the sport of curling. It’s being supported in the highest levels of competitive curling, as there are already Canadian and world championship competitions in Doubles Curling. Doubles Curling allows curlers to explore curling skill and strategy in a different context.
Doubles curling is for beginners and advanced players alike. Beginners are on more equal footing with advanced curlers, since the strategy in doubles is different than the traditional four- person game. Beginners and advanced curlers alike are exposed to all aspects of the game, and both players must take an active role in strategizing and shot-making.
The time commitment for a doubles game is smaller: games take only about an hour, as opposed to two for a regular four-person game. JP registers doubles curling in smaller blocks to further help with the time commitment.
This year we have two draw times for doubles curling: Sundays at 1:30 and Fridays at 5:00. Doubles leagues will be registered in 4-week blocks. You can register for one block to try it out, or register for a combination of the blocks throughout the season. Each block of four games will cost $50 per person. It’s a great way to get some more curling into your week and meet some new people from the JPCC community.
