Except for 2005, Curling has been part of the Winter Universiade programme since 2003. The standard of competition is very high, with many of the leading players at World, European and World Cup championships taking part.
Switzerland is a Curling country. The Swiss national team has won olympic, world and european titles in the past. Swiss teams at Universiade events have also been strong: two bronzes for the womens‘ team (2013 & 2015) and two silvers for the mens‘ team (2003 & 2011), but the top of the Universiade podium has not yet been reached.
