Penticton you are in for a real treat when we roll out the red carpet for the stars of curling! This will be the most prestigious curling event that Penticton has ever seen. Two of the stars that have qualified for the 2013 Continental Cup are Jennifer Jones (Winnipeg) and Kevin Martin (Edmonton).
The Continental Cup is a tournament held annually between teams from North America against teams from the rest of the world. Each side is represented by six teams, three women and three men. There are four main competitions for this four day event: mixed doubles, singles, teams and skins. Points are awarded for the outcome of each match with a total of 400 on the line. The first team to reach 201 points is declared the winner of the Continental Cup.
