GRAND SLAM OF CURLING EVENTS

 

The Grand Slam is a series of curling bonspiels that are a part of the annual World Curling Tour.  Grand Slam events tend to offer the most amount of money out of all the bonspiels in the curling season, and usually feature the best teams from across Canada and around the World.  The Grand Slam was instituted during the 2001-02 season, but many of the Grand Slam events have longer histories.  In the past, finals were televised on Rogers Sportsnet, but are now televised on CBC.

 

Grand Slam games are played in eight ends instead of the standard 10 ends seen in other major tournaments.  This came into effect for the 2006-07 season.
