Gatineau will Rock again in 2017

The 9th edition of the "Challenge de curling de Gatineau" is part of the World Curling Tour (WCT) and will take place October 15th to 22nd 2017 in Gatineau. This first class sports event will be jointly held at the Centre Sportif Robert Rochon (in the Masson sector of Gatineau) and the Buckingham Curling Club.

This tournament is of international caliber and is now considered one of the biggest ones on the World Curling Tour.

The best teams on the World Curling Tour will most likely stop in Gatineau this year to tweak their game in an arena setting in preparation for the olympic trials to be held in Ottawa this coming December 2017 .

For this edition, the « Pro-Am » type event will host 32 elite men’s teams and 32 « open class » teams for a total of 256 participants who will compete for over $57,850 in purse money.

This event, will be a great happening and no doubt showcase great curling for the many fans of this sport in this region. We are also anticipating that this event and the influx of many out of town teams will generate a significant economic boost to the Gatineau-Ottawa Region.

The organizing committee can rely on the following Elite Partners : la Ville de Gatineau, DoubleTree by Hilton Gatineau-Ottawa ,Transcontinental Media, the Buckingham Curling Club, Éducation, sport et loisir Québec, Curling Québec and the OVCA.
