Another event scheduled for the Kelowna Curling Club has been cancelled

Junior curling scrapped

The Kelowna Curling Club has lost another major event.

The provincial junior curling championship (U21), scheduled for later this spring, has been cancelled.

CurlBC made the announcement Friday morning.

The national championship associated with the event had already been cancelled.

The cancellation was announced due to provincial health restrictions on group sport as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The latest extension of the restrictions has seen a surge in clubs deciding to shut for the remainder of the 2020-21 season.," said Scott Braley, CEO of CurlBC.

“There are still many unknowns about the length of the season for those clubs that remain open, so we decided it was not practical to press ahead with plans for spring championships. We understand this will be a huge disappointment. However, we also know that it is the best way to keep everyone safe and give more flexibility to host clubs who may need to close at short notice.”

The Kelowna Curling Club remains open.
