Team Hammerheads was founded in 2005 when a couple of Dutch curlers decided it was time to get more serious. Two years earlier, in March 2003, we started playing curling as members of CC Utrecht. After 2 years of fun and friendship we wanted to find out if we could improve our skills to compete with the national and international curling elite. The teamname 'Hammerheads' was selected, because the hammerhead shark is a strong, able and somewhat odd creature. We think it's an intriguing animal that represents our curiosity for the curling sport. The name has a reference to the hammer in curling and our sponsor Praxis, a hardware store.

Holland is not famous for it's high temperatures, but during the Summer Cup 2012 in Sweetlake City (Zoetermeer) the temperature was far beyond 30 degrees.. Great day to lie on the beach with a cocktail, but no.. we, Team Hammerheads, decided to go on the ice to play the Summer Cup 2012.
And we won the tournament! After 6 games (5 wins) and a nice barbecue we received the big and beautiful golden cup! The perfect start of a new season!
You must think: 'hmm, these guys look familiar.. True, because WE won the Hammerheads
Trophy! Maybe it is 'not done' to win your own tournament, but hey, after 6 years we are
allowed to have our own names on the trophy, right?
THANKS EVERYONE FOR MAKING THIS ANOTHER FABULASTIC WEEKEND!
