What makes this curling event unique is that amateur teams are able to play alongside some of the most elite mixed doubles curling teams from Canada, the US and around the world. The Qualico Mixed Doubles Classic is also a Curling Canada sanctioned mixed doubles event, meaning that the top Canadian team receives a spot in the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship event.

“The Qualico Mixed Doubles Classic shows how popular mixed doubles is becoming around the world,” says John Morris, two-time Olympic gold medalist. “In just its second year, the event has already become one of the biggest Mixed Doubles in the world. This year over 12 different countries were represented as well as many top Canadian curlers to help create the best field of the season on the mixed doubles world curling tour. A large part of this success can definitely be attributed to Qualico for stepping up to help get this event off the ground in its first year. One of the many highlights of this year’s event was bringing CBC Sports on board to live stream the games. In total, there were over 25,000 viewers that tuned into 30 plus hours of HD streamed coverage.
