GAMES All games will be of 8 ends, minimum 4 ends. One extra end will be played if team are tied after 8 ends. The team with hammer loses if the extra end goes blank.
RANKING The following criteria will be used to rank the teams at the completion of group stage: 1) The win/loss record (1 win = 1 point). 2) The record of the games between the tied teams. 3) Draw Shot Challenge (DSC) – total distance of all the individual LSDs which were delivered by a team during the group stage.
FINALS The 3 group winners are ranked 1-2-3 for the quarter finals. The three teams in second are ranked 4-5-6. Third place from all groups are ranked 7-8-9. 7th and 8th place goes to the quarter finals. This is decided by the total DSC.
PRE-GAME Teams listed first in the schedule for the group games play the stones with red colored handles, teams listed second play the stones with yellow colored handles. Both players from each team does one practice shot each, then one shot that will be measured (DSC). We draw as follows: Before game one: Female player. After game one: Male player. After game two: Female player. After game three: Male player. Red team goes clockwise, yellow team goes counter-clockwise. Teams listed first goes first.
These draws also decide hammer. In the quarter finals ranking from group stage decide hammer. Hammer in rest of the playoff games is decided by drawing again, this time by player of choice.
