About

We are huge curling enthusiasts, and are avid fans of the World Curling Tour. That is why we have created this site dedicated to the World Curling Tour, in hopes that the sport will continue to grow.

The World Curling Tour has been around for several decades, having been created in 1992. Since then, the tour has seen a grand slam be added, prize pools increase dramatically, and women's competitions continue to be added to make this one of the best sporting events in the world for both men and women. In this guide to the World Curling Tour, we will go over its history, as well as what makes the World Curling Tour great.

The World Curling Tour has a men's and women's tour, as well as a junior tour, wheelchair tour, and mixed doubles. The men's and women's tours are the most high-profile events, with players from all over the world taking part in competitions in those divisions, thanks to the large prize pools that are paid out for the winners of those events.

Perhaps the biggest series of bonspiels in the World Curling Tour is the Grand Slam of Curling, a seven bonspeil series for the men, and a six bonspiel series for the women, that are the biggest events on tour, which come with the biggest prize pools. All grand slam events carry at least $100,000 in prizes, numbers that have continued to increase past the $100,000 mark over the history of these events, with some events reaching the $125,000 and $150,000 marks.

The seven grand slam events for the men are the Tour Challenge, The Masters, The National, Canadian Open, Elite 10, The Players' Championship, and the Champions Cup. Six of those events also comprise the women's grand slam of curling, with the Elite 10 being the one event that does not make a part of the grand slam.

Perhaps the greatest thing about the World Curling Tour is the equal pay for men and women in grand slam events. While so many sports, including basketball and golf, struggle with a massive pay gap between men and women, the grand slam of curling on the World Curling Tour does not, thanks to their equal prize pool.

Throughout the World Curling Tour season, teams earn ranking points based on their performances throughout each season, with winning competitions earning teams more points than their competitors who fail to finish on top. With hundreds of teams competing in World Curling Tour events over the course of a season, the teams who find themselves on top of the points standings have solidified themselves as the best in the world.
