November 6 – 11, 2018
Full Tournament Package - 18 Draws
The Tour Challenge is the largest event in the Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling with 60 of the best teams in the world (30 men's teams and 30 women's teams) split into two tiers on two arenas with 10 sheets of ice.
Tier 1: The top 15 men's teams and top 15 women's teams based on the World Curling Tour's Order of Merit (OOM) receive invites for this group. If any team declines, the next team ranked on the OOM list is invited.
Tier 2: After Tier 1 has been confirmed, the next 10 men's teams and 10 women's teams on the OOM total rankings will receive Tier 2 invites. To complete the Tier 2, five regional invitations will be extended to teams within the province or region the Tour Challenge is being held.
Tickets purchased will give you access to watch both Tiers. If you only want to see the Tier 2 teams, entrance is a donation to Jr Curling.
