Qualification for the 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 13 teams based on the World Curling Tour’s Order of Merit total ranking system as of Sept. 19, 2017. One spot in both divisions is reserved for a possible sponsor’s exemption while the final spots are guaranteed for the Tour Challenge Tier 2 winners.

In the event that a team declines their invitation, the next-ranked team on the OOM 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.
