Each pairing was called upon to play 4 13 hoop games The winners were Paul Bridgman and Keith Harris who won all 4 of their games whilst the runners-up were Tony Frewin and Betty Craig win 3 wins and a hoop difference of + 8.

At the close of play the cup was presented to Keith and Paul before being snatched away for engraving.
