Nine teams competed in the Mens section of the Championships. There was also a CB for second to fourth place with 42 points but the clear winners were Rick Wills(6) and Tom White(35) with 46 points. This was achieved by them backing up from their foursomes victory last week as well as being teammates in Sunday pennant, with Tom being undefeated in three matches.
