The WFG Masters, one of the major tournaments on the curling circuit, features 16 of the top men’s teams and 16 of the top women’s teams from around the world with a combined $400,000 prize purse. Competing teams will be announced closer to the event date.
The Sleeman Centre previously hosted the National in January 2010 when it was a men’s invitational. Brad Gushue captured his first career Grand Slam title as his crew from St. John’s, N.L., defeated Randy Ferbey’s Edmonton-based club in the final. A lot has changed in the series since then as all events in the series now feature men’s and women’s divisions with equal prize money.
This season’s WFG Masters runs Dec. 12-17 at Saskatoon’s Merlis Belsher Place. Italy’s Team Joël Retornaz and Team Kerri Einarson of Gimli, Man., are the reigning men’s and women’s champions, respectively. All ticket information is available at thegrandslamofcurling.com/tickets.
