Open League 2024/2025

league fwcc open mainFort William Curling Club offers 3 nights of semi-competitive open league curling (Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays) allowing for any gender combination on a team. It is a great night out and spots fill up very quickly for this popular league.

Monday and Tuesday nights each accommodate up to 16 teams with two flights (A & B) comprised of 8 teams each, while Thursdays accommodate up to 32 teams between two timeslots and three flights (A, B & C). There are two round-robins throughout the season and three playoff games at the season's end. Teams can move up or down a flight based on their win/loss record after the first half of the season. This allows teams to find their appropriate skill level so games remain both competitive and fun.

Rules of Play

  1. The teams shall toss a coin to determine which team delivers the first stone in the first end. The winner of the toss has the choice between playing the first or second stone of the end. The team that plays the first stone of the end has choice of handle colour.
  2. All games are 8 ends (or buzzer) whichever comes first. If the two teams agree prior to the game to play less than 8, the buzzer rule must still be followed if time becomes an issue. The buzzer indicates you complete the end you're in and play 1 more.
  3. An end is considered complete once the final stone thrown in an end comes to rest.
  4. Please remember to keep up the pace of play. The buzzer gives you 20 minutes before the next draw. You should be able to complete your game in that time frame.
  5. If a team has a spare player, that person must throw 1st or 2nd rocks.
  6. The 5 Rock Rule applies.
  7. The “No-tick” Rule is not in effect.
  8. Ties are allowed in round robin play.

Unless otherwise stated above, the general rules of play from Curling Canada should be followed where applicable:

Playoff Rules

The above Rules of Play apply with the following additions/modifications:

  1. For the Finals, the hammer will go to the team with the higher seed in the Final Standings. It will be noted on the draw board.
  2. Tie Breaker Rules: If a game is tied after the last end, a draw to the button will determine the winner.
    • Each team will choose one person to throw the rock.
    • The team that scored in the final end throws first.
    • FULL SWEEPING is allowed.
    • The skip OR designated broom holder of the non-shooting team is allowed to sweep the opponent’s rock behind the tee line just like a normal shot in game play.
    • If no rocks land in the house, each team will throw again until a winner is determined.
