The annual tournament took place at Lincroft School on Saturday 21st January with forty two players hoping to pick up a trophy from eleven events. The Ladies singles competition was split into two groups with the two group winners competing in the final. Elstow's Yvonne Freer found herself pitted against Bedford Community's Cate Thomas and stormed away with the title for her second time 11-4, 11-9, 11-7.
The Men's singles title between winner from two years ago Marston's Matt Evans and club mate Mike Wilkins was expected to be a one sided affair and with the first two legs going 11-4, 11-7 it seemed the pundits were correct. However, Wilkins then showed his experience and bounced back to win the next two legs 11-7, 11-7 with a fine display of how to block Evan's punishing forehand loop. The final leg didn't disappoint the crowd and went to 9-9 until Evans closed the match and championship 11-9.
