Mixed curling, also known as coed curling, is the sport of curling when played by men and women together. Some community and school level curling is mixed, while most top-level curling championships are divided into men's and women's divisions. A normal mixed team consists of 2 men and 2 women with the throwers alternating in gender. In 2008,[when?] the World Curling Federation introduced a World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship.

The World Mixed Curling Championship is the world's top-level mixed curling event. The World Curling Championships, and the top Canadian tournaments known as the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and the Tim Hortons Brier are single-sex events or are divided into single-sex divisions.
