Traditional Curling

Traditional curling, like you see at World Championships, is made up of single sex teams of either five men or five women. However, for traditional team curling you do not always need the fifth team member. A team consists of four athletes: the fourth, third, second and lead. They are supported by an alternate (substitute). One of the athletes will be the skip.

Mixed Doubles Curling

What is Mixed Doubles curling? Mixed doubles is a dynamic form of curling, where it is all about stone positioning, a lot of play to the four foot circle and a lot about angles. It is a faster version of curling that only requires two players on each team. Mixed Doubles Curling will make its debut on the Olympic Winter Programme at the games in Pyeongchang, South Korea 2018.
