Muirhead in Canada, Brewster in Switzerland

Both Scottish Champion teams are in action this week. Eve Muirhead, Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton are already in Canada to compete in the 2012 Players' Championship at Credit Union Place in Summerside, PEI, April 17-22. The competition, the final event in the Capital One Grand Slam of Curling, has separate men's and women's events, each featuring many of the world's top ranked teams from the 2011-12 season. There are no Scottish teams in the men's draw in Canada.

However, Tom Brewster, Greg Drummond, Scott Andrews and Michael Goodfellow are competing in the European Masters at St Gallen in Switzerland, which begins on Wednesday.

Also in the draw is David Murdoch. But David is recovering from surgery to his shoulder and won't be taking part. Logan Gray will skip the Murdoch entry with Ross Paterson, Alasdair Guthrie and Richard Woods. The European Masters is only a men's event this season.
