Dan Kelly, Karen Wauters and Jimmy Stryhn won the 2021/22 Coupe de Luxembourg. Three teams participated in the tournament that provided plenty of curling fun and some high-level curling.
This was especially true of the final game where Team Kelly faced Team Schweitzer (Claude Schweitzer, Barry Foulds, Volker Beba). At the end of the regular game both teams were tied 4-4 after six ends, and a two-player last stone draw was played to decide the winner.
In the end, team Kelly were the more precise team, with the cumulative distance of both stones from the centre being less than 20 centimeters.
Third place went to Team Benoy (Alex Benoy, Phillipe Giltaire, Matt Goerens).
Gregor Graham and Claude Schweitzer won the 2017/2018 Luxembourg Curling National Doubles Championship. The finals took place this past weekend in the Kockelscheuer Ice Arena between three teams in a double round-robin competition where Graham and Schweitzer gave no ground and won all four matches.
Graham/Schweitzer vs. Husi/Benoy: 8-4 and 7-4
Graham/Schweitzer vs. Wauters/Etienne: 13-1 and 7-4
The vice-champion title went to Karen Wauters and Marco Etienne, who defeated Marc Husi and Alex Benoy 7-2 and 12-4
While the end results mazy not show it all teams were very competitive and every match hung in balance until the very end. Participants agreed the curling played was at a high European level. This included the ice conditions and especially the ambiance between the opponents.
The next possibility to see the best Luxembourg curlers in a tournament at Kockelscheuer is 11 and 12 March when Curling Club Luxembourg organizes its International Doubles tournament.
