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 fair play, 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, followed by a playoff. At the end of each third 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.
The side A winner of the playoffs gets the honour of having their team added to the league trophy, and a prize is awarded to the side B champion.
