Elise Everset and Adam Cseke look to advance to the national stage

Two Okanagan curlers will go up against the province’s best after locking in a spot for the 2020 BC Mixed Doubles Curling Championships.

Elise Everest and Adam Cseke curled to a championship berth last weekend as their Team Kelowna will be one of 16 teams from across B.C. vying for the bonspeil title hosted by the Hope Curling Club starting Feb. 25.

Teams from Vancouver, Victoria, Prince George and more will hope to play their best games as the winner of the event will advance to represent Team BC at the national championships later this year.

“We look forward to welcoming all the teams to Hope Curling Club. This will be a fun, social event with some great competition,” said Jessica McWilliams, from the Hope Curling Club.

The fast-paced variant of curling features one male and one female curler and has only eight ends (as opposed to the usual 10).

Mixed doubles curling debuted at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics where Team Canada won gold, and it will be played once again at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing.
