The world's best curlers.
The sport's largest prize.
The Everest Curling Challenge is a world-class curling event with a novel game format. The event, which will air across Canada on TSN, and in the U.S. will bring together 32 of the world’s top women’s and men’s curlers to compete for the single largest prize in the sport. The event will be hosted in Fredericton, New Brunswick over a three-day period, Friday, August 25, 2017 – Sunday, August 27, 2017.
Everest is a big supporter of curling and believe the sport represents the best of community, fellowship and accessibility. As an advocate for families, Everest was built on the same values.
The inaugural Everest Curling Challenge will feature a unique, mixed-player format. Curlers will not be curling on their usual teams. Instead, Skips will take turns drafting players for each position but must exclude team members from their regular competition teams. Each team must have two men and two women.
Excitement will be at an all-time high as a lot of strategy will be involved. We could see former teammates reunite or even family members and spouses playing together (or against each other!).
The official Draft takes place Thursday, August 24, 2017 from 5:30 - 7:30 PM AT. Be sure to check back here for updates and final team announcements.
Good luck to all curlers!
