26 Aug 2019 – The QRC Winter Games NZ Mixed Doubles Curling Tournament presented by Forsyth Barr gets under way in Naseby, Central Otago tomorrow, and NZ Curling's National Coach Peter de Boer says the Kiwi players are raring to go.

The top three teams from the 2019 New Zealand Championships will carry the home side's hopes, including back-to-back champions Jess and Ben Smith who will use this event to gain valuable experience for the 2020 World Championship in Canada.

"Mixed Doubles will be a big part of NZ Curling's future," said de Boer, "and for our top players to get this sort of international competition at home is just huge."
