The finals of the National Curling Doubles Championship 2018/2019 will play out this weekend at the Kockelscheuer Ice Arena.
The Championship is open for teams of two women, two men or one woman and one man. Games will be played under the (mixed) doubles rules of play from WCF and in the Spirit of Curling.
A Round-Robin (all-play-all ) and gold and bronze final is scheduled, as five teams (see below) will compete in these finals. Each match is scheduled a maximum of six ends (after 45 minutes: completion of the end plus 1 end). Round-Robin Classification will be based on points, direct confrontation (if same points), ends, positive stones and negative stones. If two or more teams have the same number of points against each other for the gold or bronze-final qualification, a last stone draw is played by the two team players to determine the qualified team.
