Eighteen men’s teams and twelve women’s teams will battle it out through to the final games on Saturday. The Championships have attracted entries from all over Europe.
Russia is represented in both the men’s and women’s events and there will be teams from Switzerland, Sweden, England and Ireland as well as some of the newer curling countries, e.g Iceland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. The Latvian men’s team is travelling all the way from Riga by road and sea.
