Sunday Sinners Mixed Doubles League

When

The main curling draw starts at 10:30am, with Crokinole and lunch out to follow immediately. Lunch out is optional. If there are enough teams for two curling draws, the second draw will start at 9:00am. There will be a Sunday Sinners league in the Fall and Spring sessions. If you would prefer another doubles league, check out Wednesday night doubles!

  • If you are assigned ice, then arrive 15-30 minutes prior to the 9am draw time in order to help prepare the ice and so we can start on time.  Ice will only be done for the earliest draw.
  • If you are assigned bar, then bar will only be for the late draw (or between the draws) due to ALE rules of not serving before 10am on Sunday.

Registration is open to members of the Charlotte Curling Association. Leagues are intended for adults (18 years or older). Curlers 14 years or older can curl in regular adult leagues with parental permission. Please contact the League Coordinator to discuss.

Open Spots

32 individual spots (16 teams) - If registering as a team, the members must be one of each gender.

Format

This league is a mixed doubles Curling and Crokinole challenge. There is a max of 16 mixed doubles team spots (32 individuals), any more than 10 teams and there will be two draws. All curling and Crokinole skill levels are encouraged to play. Prior league experience is not necessary and all genders are eligible. Register as an individual or pair. Rinks will be created in an attempt to integrate and develop all new curlers. This league will last at least 10 weeks, with this fall being up to 18 weeks long.

Curling Rules

Curling games are a maximum 1.5 hours or 8 ends. Ties will be broken by a 9th end. Timing rules are in effect as we ask with 10 minutes left that you not start a new end with less than 10 minutes left. Choice of hammer proceeds as normal after the 8th end. Rinks must be comprised of at least 1 of the regular members or a forfeit results unless a make-up game has been arranged. A game may be played as "practice" on that sheet. All rescheduled matches are the responsibility of the 2 teams and pictures of the final score should be emailed to Anne or Neil.

Crokinole Rules

Each rink will play a game of Crokinole against their opponent. Games will be to 100 points. This game will count for 2 points in the standings.

Scoring and League Standings

Standings will be calculated by wins and crokinole wins.  Winning the curling match will result in 6 points and winning crokinole will result in 2 points in the standings.  Ties in the standings will be broken by head-to-head records and then by a single game playoff.  Seeding can be determined by a coin toss if all tie breakers are exhausted.

Playoffs against Wednesday Night Doubles League

The top 4 teams from the Sunday Sinners will be involved in a playoff using league time or a Sunday potluck. We may coordinate with Wednesday to create some camaraderie with the other doubles league.

Fall Session - TBD

Spring session - TBD

Crokinole Tournament

Any team not curling at the playoffs is eligible to play in a concurrent crokinole tournament.  Draws and playoffs will be random and determined on site.

These playoffs are meant to be a party and celebration of the end of the season with curling and a potluck lunch.  Everyone is welcome to attend to watch curling, play crokinole, eat delicious food, and enjoy everyone's presence.
