The English Curling Association are running the 2022 Junior National Championship at Fenton’s Rink from March 25-27. Three women’s teams and two men’s have entered, including many members representing the South Of England Curling Club. Teams and the full draw can be found in detail below:
|Mia Andell||Annabelle Martin||Anna Howey||Phoenix Davies|
|Keara Hunnisett||Eliza Bassett||Amelia Hofmeyr||Alisha Petter|
|Helena Kiggell||Anna MacDougall||Lina Opel||Marianna Ward|
|Ben Holcombe||Kathryn Spain||Martin Gregory||Lesley Gregory|
|Lisa Farnell||James Burman||Kitty Conlin||Ian Gasson|
Team Andell will be looking to defend their women’s title, after winning the last English Junior Championship which was held in September 2021. On the men’s side, there will be a new team representing England as Team Sugden have “aged-out” and are no longer competing at junior level. After each team has a practice session on the first day, a double round robin will begin for the junior women. Since there are only 2 junior men’s teams, they will play a best-of-five series. The champions will then represent England at the World Junior B Curling Championships in 2023. We wish everyone taking part the best of luck!
