Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling National event in Chestermere to be postponed until November 2021

Event postponed

Due to the ongoing risks of COVID-19 across Canada, Sportsnet announced today that the 2020-21 Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling season will be postponed.

This includes the BOOST National that was scheduled to take place in Chestermere from December 8-13, 2020, as part of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling series.

“While we are disappointed that the BOOST National event will be postponed due to COVID-19 and current provincial health regulations, we understand and appreciate the need to keep our community safe,” says City of Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We look forward to hosting the event in 2021 and we appreciate the confidence that sponsors and event organizers have shown in our community to host such an important world curling event.”

In the announcement today, officials from Sportsnet provided further details about the decision to postpone the season and shared the rescheduled dates for the first three events of the 2020-21 Grand Slam season, including the National event that will now take place in Chestermere in November 2021.

 “The safety and well-being of curlers, volunteers, fans, partners and employees is of the utmost importance to Sportsnet,” said Rob Corte, Vice President, Sportsnet and NHL Production. “Following careful thought and deliberation, we made the decision to postpone the season until we could safely deliver the world-class competition and intimate fan experience the Grand Slam series is known for.”

Working with the full support and cooperation of local organizing committees and sponsors, Sportsnet has rescheduled the first three events of the 2020-21 Grand Slam season – Tour Challenge, Masters and National – to Fall 2021. Each event will be hosted by the same communities originally selected for the 2020-21 season.

The following events have been confirmed for the 2021-22 Grand Slam season:

  • Tour Challenge – Grande Prairie, AB | Sept. 21-26, 2021 at Coca-Cola Centre
  • Masters – Sarnia, ON | Oct. 19-24, 2021 at Sarnia Arena
  • National – Chestermere, AB | Nov. 2-7, 2021 at Chestermere Recreational Centre

Sportsnet remains committed to growing the sport of curling outside of Canada and will continue to work closely with local organizers in Las Vegas to reschedule the MERIDIAN Open, the Grand Slam’s first international event.

As a result of the revised season schedule, updated points and prize money details will be confirmed at a later date. Tournament details and ticket information – including refund and roll-over information for ticket holders – is available online at thegrandslamofcurling.com
