We now know who will carry Canada’s hopes in mixed doubles curling next month. Robert Desjardins and Isabelle Néron of Quebec won the national championship in Leduc, Alberta on Sunday.

They defeated Saskatchewan’s Dustin Kalthoff and Nancy Martin 7-3 to advance to the World Mixed Doubles and Senior Curling Championships in Fredericton, April 13-20, 2013.

The Canadian senior entries will be Edmonton’s Cathy King on the women’s side and Rob Armitage of Red Deer, Alberta in men’s action.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Robert and Isabelle as one of the 28 mixed doubles teams competing at this event,” said Local Organizing Committee Chair Wayne Tallon. "Interest in mixed doubles curling is certainly on the rise, here in Canada and around the world. Having these teams coming – in addition to the 34 senior teams we’re expecting – will be a real treat for fans and organizers alike.”

With roughly 350 athletes and coaches expected, the 2013 World Mixed Doubles and Senior Curling Championships presented by Cox & Palmer is on track to become the largest curling event ever in terms of total number of teams and countries represented.

Tournament passes for the 2013 World Mixed Doubles and Senior Curling Championships are available online at and or at the Aitken Centre Box Office, the Capital Winter Club and the Fredericton Curling Club. Pricing for the full tournament pass is $99 plus HST plus service fee, or $114 total.
