WFG Masters Format and Qualification

Format: The 2022 Masters features 16 men’s and 16 women’s teams. Both divisions are split into four pools of four teams for round-robin play. The top eight teams overall qualify for the playoffs.

Qualification: The top 15 men’s and top 15 women’s teams based on the WCF world ranking system as of Oct. 31, 2022, will be invited to participate. One spot in both the men’s and women’s fields will be reserved for a possible sponsor’s exemption. In the event that a team in the top 15 declines their invitation, the next team on the WCF world rankings will be invited until the field is complete. Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling reserves the right to implement a sponsor’s exemption in both the men’s and women’s events in which one spot could be filled at their discretion.
