19 Oct 2012 – Auckland Curling's 2012 season came to a close in mid-October with the club's Mixed Doubles championship.
Liz Matthews capped off a great year when she and playing partner Ian Ford held off a strong challenge from Waverley Taylor and Kieran Grieve in the final.
The 14 teams contested a lightning competition, with 5 draws of 4-end games completed in just over 4 hours.
All sides started with 2 games in the first three rounds, the draw having been determined by lot. Teams were then ranked by the number of wins, draws, ends won and points scored.
The four sides to qualify for semi-finals were Kelsi Heath and Kieran Ford, Liz Matthews and Ian Ford, Lucienne Langille and Dean Fotti (all on 2 wins), while Waverley Taylor and Kieran Grieve had a win and a draw.
