Purple & Gold is a fun league at the Vancouver Curling Club catering primarily for players with a moderate amount of experience (2+ years). Our focus is on fun, etiquette, and sportsmanship, though a little healthy competition is never a bad thing. Teams are strongly encouraged to socialize and enjoy the company of your opponents each week in the lounge.
The league’s median age is typically somewhere in the mid-30s and we accept teams of any gender distribution (i.e. Open, Mixed, Men, or Women).
To keep play fun and competitive for different skill levels, Purple & Gold has an A and B side, with the highest performing teams playing in side A.
The season is split into thirds with seven games apiece. At the end of the first two thirds of the season, the bottom two teams from side A are relegated to side B, and the top two teams from side B are promoted to side A. In the final third of the season, teams compete in a playoff format to decide side A and side B champions.
The side A champion gets the honour of having their team added to the league trophy! Prizes are awarded to the side B champion, and to the team that has played the most ends during the season.
