19 February 1953 - 11 July 2016

14 July 2016 – New Zealand Curling is deeply saddened to advise the passing of Wendy Becker, one of one of the country's most well-loved curlers.

Wendy passed away on Monday 11 July, aged 63.

Born into a well-known curling family, Wendy was a curler for most of her life and competed at the top level for many years. She represented New Zealand at eight World Senior Championships between 2005 and 2015.

As recently as 2014, Wendy and husband Peter won the MCI Doubles and later that year she skipped her team to the New Zealand Women's Championship title.

However it is for her warmth, hospitality and generosity to the local, national and international curling community that Wendy will best be remembered.

We extend our love and deepest sympathies to Peter, Sean, James, Bridget and Scott and their families.

20 Mar 2016 – It was no surprise to see the experienced internationals of Sean Becker (New Zealand) and Katya Kiiskinen (Finland) win the season-opening MCI Doubles in Naseby.

But their opponents in the final would not have been the bookmaker's favourites at the start of the weekend.

The Junior pairing of Anton Hood and Youth Olympian Courtney Smith finished second in their group behind the eventual winners. They were not fazed lining up against 2015 NZ Champions Bridget Becker and Scott Becker in their semi-final, winning in an extra end
