2020 Canadian U18 Curling Championships come to Sudbury

Curling Canada announced, last April, that Sudbury had been awarded the 2020 Canadian Under-18 Boys and Girls Curling Championships, with the national bonspiel to be staged at both the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Compex, as well as the Idylwylde Golf & Country Club.

The competition, the fourth of its kind since inception in 2017, will run from April 21st to the 26th (2020), bringing together 28 of the top youth curling teams in the country (14 in both the boys and girls draw).

Locals have excelled in making their mark in the U18 nationals to date, with Curl Sudbury enjoying a clean sweep in the inaugural year of the championship (Girls Gold – Kira Brunton, Kate Sherry, Sydnie Stinson, Jessica Leonard; Boys Gold – Jake Horgan, Max Cull, Nicholas Bissonnette, Shane Robinson) and the Idylwylde foursome of Bella Croisier, Jamie Smith, Piper Croisier and Lauren Rajala recently adding their name to that list, walking away with the hardware in Sherwood Park (Alberta).

Two-time Canadian University champion Jennifer Gates and long-time volunteer Barbara Nott will co-chair the event, which can now be added to the many high profile curling bonspiels to be hosted in Sudbury: Tim Horton’s Brier (1953, 1983), Scotties Tournament of Hearts (2001), Canadian Juniors (1990), Canadian Seniors (1973) and the Canadian Mixed Championships (2012).
