The Pivot/Handicap cup is a knockout competition. Team members are allocated a handicap at the start of the season, normally based on their current standing in the EBU National Grading Scheme (NGS). Matches of 24 boards are played, with each team member partnering each of the other three members of the team for 8 of the 24 boards.
Match scheduling and the inputting of results is managed by the League Committee through the English Bridge Union EBUKnockoutsystem. Access to EBUKnockout to enter results is restricted to Team Captains or others authorised to administer the competition, and is gained through the ‘My EBU’ section of the EBU web site.
Full details of the competition are contained in the Rules, which can be accessed from the menu on the left. The current handicaps for the 2017/18 season are per the Handicap IMP adjustment table (and can also be accessed directly from the menu on the left).
