The Luxembourg Curling Federation, together with its sponsors Rochebobois and Human Capital Focus, is sending a team of four to participate in this year's World Mixed Curling Championship, which will take place in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK) from 15 to 22 October 2022.

This is only the third time that Luxembourg is represented at the World Mixed Curling Championship. In previous editions, the team did not secure any wins.

For this edition, Team Luxembourg is composed of Maja Bjerg-Petersen (lead), Lukas Jirousek (second), Karen Wauters (third and vice-skip) and Alex Benoy (fourth and skip).

The aim is to come home with a first win against one of the non-favourite teams, such as Mexico or Austria, and to gain experience against World Championship favourites Slovakia, Hungary, Switzerland and Scotland.
