​Former national winners Les Sharp and Gill King (Yaxley) defend their senior mixed pairs crown, while Angela Cox (Langtoft) and Melvyn Beck (Whittlesey Manor) bid to retain their respective secretary singles titles.

Ann Holmes (Stamford) seeks to retain the 3b triples but with two different players in Chrissie Baker and Sue Seed, and, ironically, one of her team-mates from last year, Moira Holroyd, is in opposition this time in an all-Stamford final.
