Maxwell & Morton Trophies

The Maxwell and Morton Trophies are annual Scottish Curling competitions for male & female teams representing their local ice rink. The teams for each participating ice rink play in regional qualifying leagues, throughout the season. After these are complete, the top teams in each Section qualify for the knockout stages to determine the national champions. All participating curlers must have membership of Scottish Curling.
