Qualification for the Masters

masters

The Masters features a total of 15 men’s teams and 15 women’s teams. Both men’s and women’s divisions include the top 14 teams based on the World Curling Tour’s Order of Merit total ranking system (as of Sept. 11, 2016) plus 1 sponsor’s exemption.

In the event that a team in the top 14 declines their invitation, the next team on the OOM rankings will be invited until the field is complete.

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