For over 35 years, Kruger Products has sponsored the Scotties®' Tournament of Hearts, Canada’s National Women’s Curling Championship. We’re proud to partner with and support this iconic women’s curling event which features the best curlers from every province and territory.
The Scotties represents the very best of women’s sport – dedicated teamwork, incredible passion and the strong bond of sisterhood that can only be developed through intense competition.
You’ve Made It Possible Since 1981
It’s only because you purchase Scotties®' facial tissue, Cashmere® and Purex ® bathroom tissue and SpongeTowels® paper towels that we’ve been able to act as presenting sponsor of the Scotties since 1981.
Thank you for helping exceptional Canadian women compete and grow this incredible sport!
The heart of curling is real warmth founded on sportsmanship and camaraderie, sharpened by the keen spirit of competition. Kruger Products is proud to be part of this truly great Canadian game.“ »
This year’s Scotties Tournament of Hearts is increasing the number of participating teams from 12 to 16. It’s going to be even tougher to win and more exciting to watch than ever before.
The event will be held in Penticton, BC at the South Okanagan Events Centre from January 27 to February 4, 2018. Leading up to the tournament, the provincial and territorial championship games will be held across Canada to determine who will earn their berth in the National Women’s Curling Championship.
Every year, hometown teams from across Canada compete in provincial and territorial curling championships with one goal in mind – to qualify for and then win our nation’s most prestigious women’s curling tournament.
These elite competitors will join Team Canada in a battle for the Scotties Tournament of Hearts title and the Canadian Women's Curling National Championship.
A Great Canadian Pastime Keeps Growing
Today there are over 1.6 million curlers active across Canada, including many enthusiastic players working at Kruger Products. There’s also a tremendous fan base with over 13 million Canadians tuning in to watch curling each year!
Some great news is the sport’s popularity with younger people. Almost 40% of players in the country are under the age of 34 so the future looks bright indeed.
Curling truly captures the imagination of Canadians from coast to coast. Kruger Products is thrilled to play a role in growing this exciting, challenging and unique game.
The winner of the 2017 Scotties Tournament of Hearts is Team Rachel Homan from Ontario (Ottawa Curling Club).
Subsequently, Team Homan earned an Olympic berth and will not be competing in the 2018 Scotties as they’ll be focused on preparing to represent our nation and beat the world’s best. Therefore, last year’s runners-up, Team Englot, will take up the torch and defend the Team Canada title.
