One double-rink entry per club. Total Points. Single knockout. Championship Finals in Ottawa played in conjunction with the Men's Governor General Championship. It was on the initiative of the Rideau Curling Club ladies that this competition came into being. Mrs. R.B. Viets and Mrs. K.A. Greene felt the need for a competition equivalent to the Men's Governor General's Trophy. They approached Colonel Eric McKenzie, Controller of the Household at Rideau Hall and were presented with a Trophy donated by Lady Tweedsmuir, wife of Lord Tweedsmuir, Governor General of Canada from 1936-40. Date on Trophy 1937-38, played for first time in 1938. Played in "Irons" up to and including 1953, since 1954 in "Granites". In 1950 the ends were reduced from 14 to 12 and 10 ends are now only played at the Championship.
