Eight teams, from three PEI curling facilities, are competing in the provincial championship for the new Olympic sport of Mixed Doubles curling, for 2-person teams of one male and one female, taking place at the Charlottetown Curling Complex from Feb. 9-11. The winning team advances to the 2018 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Championship from March 29 to April 1 in Leduc Alberta.
The teams will play modified triple knockout draws, with the winner of each section dropping down to compete in subsequent sections. If a team wins all three sections, they will be champion without a playoff. Otherwise, the section winners advance to a two-game championship round on Sunday afternoon.
Modified Triple Knockout Format.
|Date||Time||Draw||Ice 1||Ice 2||Ice 3||Ice 4||Ice 5|
Scenarios for P1/P2:
1. One team wins all three qualifiers: Championship Round is not required.
2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both X and Z (and win the event if they win either game), the other winner plays in Y (and has to win both games).
3. Three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in Z and the other winners play off in X and Y. If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to Z and the other two teams play off in X and Y.
*Qualifying games are in yellow on the schedule
