At the end of the usual 12-hour marathon day Mark Kiteley and Dan Grant emerged victorious, in a tense three-gamer, over first-time finalists Alan Bowden and Henry Jefferies. Gareth Price’s report – of a day on which the venerable President of the RFA, Bernard Atkinson, played at one end of the age-range and the youngest member of the RFA, 17 year-old Lewis Keates, won the Mate’s Plate with Will Ellison – will follow when Gareth has recharged his batteries. See the Gallery for ‘Latest photographs’ and ‘Action Photographs’ – you may be there!

The President’s Cup: Grant & Kiteley beat Bowden & Jefferies 14-16, 16-14, 15-6

The Mate’s Plate: Ellison & Keates beat Stubbs & Tristao 16-14, 15-12

The Love Mug: Dean & Matthews beat Parker & Smith 15-13, 15-11
