Top 15

The Curling News Top 15 is a frequent ranking of the best curling team performances as they occur around the world, for both men and women, and utilizes savvy curling knowledge, complex mathematical theorems, and plain old subjectivity.

Read the comments under each team name for hints and tips on our line of thinking; and if you disagree, or believe we’re missing a notable team performance entirely, send us a message via the contact page and we might consider your input. Perhaps.
