In the doubles, Dave West paired up with Derek Hansen for a nip-and-tuck meeting them lead three times and pegged back level three times before they took control to run out handsome 13-3 winners.
John and Rose Thatcher were also 13-3 winners, but the pairing of Sue Smith and Paul Puddicombe, went down 13-6.
