The Guelph Curling Club plays host for the U21+ Sapphire Slam, another terrific early season U21+ event. Guelph is a big club with 8 sheets of ice, brand new rocks in 2018, a fully staffed kitchen and a terrific curling atmosphere. This event runs in conjunction with the U18 Sapphire Slam making it one big junior curling weekend. The U21+ Sapphire Slam has room for 12 Women’s and 12 Men’s teams.
Last year the Sapphire had participation from across Southern Ontario, the United States high performance squads, touring teams from China and the Women’s and Men’s Varsity teams from the University of Guelph. If you’re looking great competition, lots of games, ice time, and team time make time for the Sapphire on your season schedule.
