The Manitoba Curling Tour (MCT) is a governing body run by a group of volunteers who all curl on the tour, and whose goal is to grow the tour’s visibility and membership within our province. The MCT strives to be highly competitive in order to attract world-class teams, yet remain accessible for all teams looking to enter the sport above a recreational level.
Each season Curl Manitoba allocates a select number of berths for both the women and men into their respective Manitoba Provincial Playdowns. These provincial berths are awarded through both locally hosted events determined by the MCT, and through points allocation as teams participate in various events throughout the season. The MCT works with local event organizers to set up the dates, formats, and locations of MCT-sanctioned events, and also hosts a final MCT Tour Championship bonspiel for all teams who have participated in the tour that season. Out of province teams are welcome to play in tour events, however unless based in Manitoba will be ineligible for any provincial berths.
The MCT is funded by allocating $20.00 per team registration per bonspiel to tour expenses, with the remainder going towards bonspiel prize payouts. We also rely on both tour and event sponsorship from generous companies and organizations that we encourage our members to support.
Registration for MCT events can be completed through our Curling I/O link (available soon) where teams can register for multiple bonspiels with one payment. Both e-transfer and credit card are accepted. Please note, however, that for the 2023 - 2024 season, registration for the Mother Club spiel will have to be done separately through the Granite Curling Club website.
Events will use a standardized set of rules with eligible points confirmed on a per event basis depending on the number of entries.
The tour schedule is released as early as possible once dates have been confirmed.
