 Four groups of five set out in search of glory in the server section. Richard Webster recorded a 100% record in Group 2, whilst Clive Mounsey topped group 3 also unbeaten.  In group 1 Keith Franks and David Elwood were tied on 3½ point, as indeed  were Peter Dudeney and Stephen Bailey in group 4. Tie break systems were unable to separate the player so the final was formed with a group of 6.

The final was again played as a single round “Round Robin event. Some great battles ensured and when the dust settled Richard Webster emerged the winner by just ½ a point. Both players remaining unbeaten.
