There were 14 pairs: three from Wrest Park and the remainder from other clubs. The competition was run on lines kindly suggested by Richard Keighley; the entry being split into three groups of four, four and five pairs. The weather was fair with no rain – the lawns were damp to start with and lawn 2 was very wet.

The three block winners and the runners-up from the larger group contested the semi-finals. David and Jean Ball beat Peggy Kenny and Judi Priestley 7-3, and Martin Field and Pauline Lefrere beat Linda Potton and Vera Pearson 7-4. In the final David and Jean beat Martin and Pauline 7-3.

L-R: runners-up Martin Field and Pauline Lefrere and winners Jean and David Ball.
