23 Apr 2016 – The run for New Zealand's Mixed Doubles and Senior Men came to an end early in the playoff rounds of their respective World Championships in Sweden.
Bridget and Scott Becker finished second in their Mixed Doubles pool with a 5-1 win-loss record. They then drew Canada in the Round of 16 (eighth-final) game, and were well beaten 12-2 by the Canadians, who barely missed a shot in the match.
With Olympic Qualifying points allocated down to 12th place they then had a B-side knockout match against Norway, and went down 8-3 to finish the event tied for 13th.
