An unprecedented celebration of Canadian championship curling will take place next year in Leduc, Alta., it was announced today by Curling Canada.

Over a nine-day span, the Leduc Recreation Centre will play host to four Canadian championship events:

  • The 2018 CCAA/Curling Canada Championships from March 24-28
  • The 2018 U SPORTS/Curling Canada Curling Championships from March 24-28
  • The 2018 Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championship from March 26-31
  • The 2018 Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship from March 29-April 1

“The Leduc curling community is in for an absolute treat as these four national championships present a wide spectrum of curling at its highest level,” said Peter Inch, Chair of Curling Canada’s Board of Governors. “It’ll be a wonderful opportunity for curling fans in Leduc and the Greater Edmonton area to embrace four events at once, and we know that based on past events in Leduc that the visiting athletes, officials and fans will go home with smiles on their faces.”

The U SPORTS and CCAA championships, along with Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship, be played in the Leduc Recreation Centre’s twin arenas — Ken’s Furniture Arena and Robinson Arena — while the Canadian Wheelchair Championship is scheduled for the eight-sheet BMO Centre curling facility; it will be part of the 100th anniversary celebrations for the club.

Meanwhile, it will be the first time the CCAA national men’s and women’s championships, for colleges and institutes, will be staged in cooperation with Curling Canada. It will be the 14th CCAA national championship event; the event started in 1984 and ran through to 1990. It was revived in 2012 and has been staged annually ever since.
