Curling Ends Per Game

Over the course of a season, your team may win numerous ends during a game, or maybe just a few. It’s a possibility that you won a game 10-5, but only scored in 3 ends. Maybe your team lost 8-6, but you scored in 5 ends. Maybe your team blanked an end or two. Therefore, the amount of ends you win per game may not accurately reflect your points for/against per game statistics. Thus, we rely on two different statistics to figure out how many ends a team wins and loses per game.


Ends per Game

In curling, there are two statistics related to points per game. They are:

  1. Ends For per Game
  2. Ends Against per Game
  3. Blank Ends per Game

Ends For per Game

The ends for per game statistic reveals the average amount of ends that your team wins per game. This statistic is calculated by adding up the total amount of ends your team won from all the games played, and then dividing that by the amount of games your team has played.

Ends Against per Game

The ends against per game statistic reveals the average amount of ends that your opponent wins per game. This statistic is calculated by adding up the total amount of ends your opponent won from all the games played, and then dividing that by the amount of games your team has played.

Blank Ends per Game

The blank ends per game statistic reveals the average amount of ends that you blank per game. This statistic is calculated by adding up the total amount of ends your team blanks from all the games played, and then dividing that by the amount of games your team has played.

Over the course of a season or bonspiel, this statistic will remain relatively low. A typical value for this statistic is usually less than 1.25 blank ends per game.
