The first of the Asham Under 21 Slams of the season will take place at Greenacres Curling Rink from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th September. The Asham Under 21 Slam, which is comprised of four events, was introduced to improve the pathway structure for junior curlers. Under 21 teams can develop their potential in competition formats that simulate experiences at national finals. Points from each event will be totalled together to determine the overall male and female Slam winners, who will each be awarded £1000 prize money.
