Ontario and Manitoba have cancelled playdowns for the women’s and men’s national curling championships because of on-going health concerns and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It means the 2019 provincial champions will represent the provinces at the Scotties and Briers, scheduled to be played in Calgary in February and March.

WDSE Client Rachel Homan and her team (Emma Miskew, Joanne Courtney, and Sarah Wilkes) will represent Ontario at their respective tournaments.
