Kelvin Cup Rules
1 Eligibility
  The Kelvin Cup is open to all members of the Northern Ireland Bridge Union.
2 Method of Scoring
  The Kelvin Cup is scored by IMP's.
  A difference of 1 IMP is sufficient for a win.
3 Number of Boards
  The rounds up to the Semi-Finals are played over 32 boards.
  Semi-Finals are over 48 boards.
  The Final is over 64 boards.
  The Semi-Finals and the Final may be played over one or two sessions by agreement of both captains.
4 Breaking of Ties
  In the event of a tie, this should be broken by comparing total aggregate scores (Honours not counted).
  If the match is still tied, then four extra boards should be played, four at a time until a result is obtained.
5 Composition of Teams
  A Team may consist of up to six players, but only four may take part in any one match.
  If the Final or Semi-Final are played over one session then only 4 players may play on that occasion.
  If the Final or Semi-Final are played over two sessions, up to six players may play, but only four may play in each session.
6 Choice of Dates
  The Captain of the first named Team is termed the Home Captain and has the choice of venue. The Home Captain is responsible for contacting the opposing Away Captain before the arrangement date and offering to him a choice of at least three dates, one of which must be on a different day of the week to the other two.
  In the case of a two session match, first named Captain is "at home" in the 1st session and second name Captain is "at home" in the 2nd session.
  Matches may be played before the arrangement date but must be completed on or before the last date shown for playing.
  If the Home Captain has not contacted the Away Captain with a choice of dates before the arrangement date the Away Captain must offer the Home Captain a choice of three dates, one of which must be on a different day of the week to the other two, one of which the Home Captain must accept or he forfeits the match.
  An extension to the time published will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. All such requests should be made to the Hon. Competitions Secretary before the final date published for arrangements to be made.
  If it is not possible to arrange the match before the final date then the match must be played on the final date at venue designated by the Hon. Competitions Secretary. A team not able to play that night is considered to have forfeited the match
7 Notification of Result
  The winning Captain is responsible for notifying the Hon.Competitions Secretary of the result, in IMP's, and the names of the players, in both teams, who played within 2 days of the match.
  A score card from the match, signed by both Captains, should be forwarded to the Hon. Competitions Secretary within 7 days of the date of the match.
