European Qualifiers Underway In Perth

Scotland will be sending two teams to this season’s European Curling Championships in Champéry, Switzerland at the end of November – one men’s team and one women’s team.

With that in mind, the European Playdowns are currently underway at the Dewars Centre, Perth to determine which teams will become Team Scotland for the trip to Switzerland.

Play got underway on Thursday 16 and will conclude on Sunday 19.

Four men’s and three women’s teams are in attendance and expect the competition to be fierce as we have Tom Brewster, David Edwards, Ewan MacDonald and David Murdoch in the men’s draw and Hannah Fleming, Lauren Gray and Eve Muirhead in the women’s.

Full team lineups can be found here.

The format of play is a double round-robin with a best-of-three final for both men and women. Entry is free so get along to Perth if you can to catch the action.

There have been six games so far and all but one of them have been won by just one or two points – David Murdoch and Eve Muirhead are the only undefeated skips going into Day 2.
