Grand Slam of Curling

grand slam of curling, grand slam of curling players championship
The Grand Slam of Curling currently known as the Pinty's Grand Slam of Curling is a series of curling bonspiels that are a part of the annual World Curling Tour Grand Slam events offer a purse of at least CAD$100,000, and feature the best teams from across Canada and around the World The Grand Slam was instituted during the 2001-02 season for men and 2006-07 for women, but some of the Grand Slam events have longer histories as bonspiels

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

The Grand Slam of Curling was previously operated by the sports media company Insight Sports In August 2012, Rogers Media, through its Sportsnet division, acquired the series As such, television rights to the series have also defaulted to Sportsnet, though certain events may still air championship rounds on CBC

The Grand Slam season consists of seven men's and six women's events The original four events the Masters, Canadian Open, the National and the Players' Championship are considered to be "majors"
