18 Sep 2016 – Dan Mustapic, Hans Frauenlob, Lorne DePape and Iain Craig won their third successive NZ Senior Men's Curling Championship this weekend after going through the tournament undefeated.

They were on form from the outset, with their 5 point winning margin in their first game being their closest of the round robin.

Five Men's teams lined up at the start of the event. The Women's championship was uncontested this year.

22 Oct 2016 – New Zealand's reward for earning the last qualifying spot in the playoffs at the World Mixed Curling Championship in Kazan, Russia was a knockout game against top qualifiers Sweden.

Brett Sargon, Thivya Jeyaranjan, Kieran Ford and Emily Whelan took their one with hammer and stole the second before Sweden replied with a double in the third end. The Kiwis then took the initiative, gaining their reward when they forced an error from the Swedes to score three rather than taking a safer option for two. NZ then led 5-2 at the fourth end break.
