Qualification for the Canadian Open


16 men’s and 16 women’s teams based on both the World Curling Tour’s Order of Merit (OOM) and Year-to-Date (YTD) rankings will be invited to participate.

- The top 8 teams based on the OOM ranking will receive an invitation.

- The top 7 teams based on the YTD ranking will also be invited.

- 1 spot is available for a sponsor’s exemption. The Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling reserves the right to implement a sponsor’s exemption in both the men’s and women’s fields in which one spot could be filled at their discretion.

This qualification breakdown will be applied in both the men’s and women’s events to complete the 16-team field of the Meridian Canadian Open.

As there will be teams ranked in the top 8 on both lists, we will go down both lists evenly until we complete the field (beginning with OOM and continuing to YTD).
