The Senior Female Championship saw a straight final Gloucestershire v Devon with Gloucestershire taking the honours.

Only three County Associations competed in the 16&U Female Age Group (Devon Dorset and Gloucestershire), with Gloucestershire being in dominant form in both matches, comfortably easing out runners-up Devon 10-5.

The 16&U Male competition crunch match featured the same two counties but proved to be a much closer affair with Gloucestershire winning out 7-6.

The 12&U Mixed featured all County Associations bar Wiltshire, and Cornwall notched up a 11-2 victory over Somerset early on, and fared well against Gloucestershire (loss 6-3). Devon were in dominant form in this age group, with 5 exceptional players leading the side to a 9-2 victory over Cornwall and 9-5 over nearest rivals Gloucestershire.
