Hvidovre Mixed Doubles Cup


In the group stage all teams will play each other in the group (8 ends). In case of a tie aer 8 ends a winner will be determined through a “one stone shoot-out” whereby each team makes one final draw. The team with the stone closest to the button wins.

Points will be awarded in the following way:

  • 3 points for winning in 8 ends.

  • 2 points for winning in “one stone shoot-out”.

  • 1 point for losing in “one stone shoot-out”.

  • 0 points for losing in 8 ends.

15 minutes before the game starts the first team (first team in the schedule) will have 4 minutes of practice followed by two Last Stone Draws (LSD) consisting of 1 stone per player, 1 clockwise and 1 counterclockwise. The winner of LSD (lowest average) decides the hammer. Teams practicing first play red stones. The second team will practice after the first team has finalized its LSD.

WCF approved sweeping equipment must be used. All games require a minimum of 6 ends played.

Time clocks will not be used during the matches. Players are expected to play in a reasonable pace to ensure that there are no delays in the schedule. That means that a game of 8 ends is expected to take approximately 1 h 35 min. Each team, regardless if they have a coach or not, may call one 60 seconds timeout per game. Teams that have a coach present may consult with the coach during these 60 seconds.


The two highest ranked teams in each group will qualify for the playoffs. 
Teams are ranked within the group based on:

1.        Number of points
2.        Head-to-head record
3.        Draw Shot Challenge (DSC) (counting the team’s 7 best shots from the LSD)

For the playoffs the group winners will be ranked 1-4 and the teams finishing second will be ranked 5-8. Ranking between teams from different groups will be based on number of points in the group stage followed by the DSC.

In the quarter finals 1st plays 8th and 2nd plays 7th etc. Highest ranked team based on the group stage will have the hammer in the playoff games, practice first and play with red stones.

All playoff games are played in 8 ends with a “one stone shoot-out” in case of a tie except the final round. The final and bronze game will play an extra end in case of a tie.
