Curling Club Fryslân organizes the Frisian Curling Cup from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 March 2023. This international curling tournament will be organized in the Elfstedenhal in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.
The tournament starts on Friday evening March 17th and lasts until Sunday afternoon March 19th 2023. The match times will be announced at a later date. If a team cannot be present on Friday evening due to travel times, for example, please indicate this during your registration.
The tournament will be played on 4 curling sheets in the Blue Hall of the Elfstedenhal in Leeuwarden. The Elfstedenhal is the starting point of the legendary Elfstedentocht, a skating tour of 200 kilometers on natural ice. At the end of 2021, the Elfstedenhal hosted the Olympic Qualifying Tournament (OQT) curling. Leeuwarden was the European Capital of Culture in 2018.
The minimum number of teams is 12. A maximum of 20 teams can register.
A team should consist of a minimum of 4 players. There are no restrictions regarding the composition of a team in terms of gender, wheelchair users or players using a delivery stick.
All teams play at least 5 matches. The exact number of matches and the format of the tournament will be announced once registration is closed.
The registration fee is €340,- per team consisting of 4 people. Each additional player should pay a fee of €85,-. The tournament includes coffee and tea facilities during the weekend and a dinner on Saturday evening in the center of Leeuwarden. A coach or accompanist who wants to use the coffee/tea facility and participate in the Saturday evening dinner should pay a contribution of €45,-. If a participant cannot attend the dinner on Saturday evening, this should be indicated during registration and the registration fee will be reduced by €25,-.
The registration fee must be paid in advance, for the whole team at once.
On Saturday evening, a dinner will be organized for players and accompanists. The dinner is in the center of Leeuwarden at Restaurant De Lachende Koe (The Laughing Cow). Participation in the dinner buffet should be indicated when registering, as well as any dietary requirements.
We recommend the adjacent Westcord WTC Hotel Leeuwarden for teams that wish to arrange overnight stays. As tournament organization we have been able to make agreements with this hotel. A discount code will be sent after registration.
