In the club championships this year, Dave Gibson retained the men's title for the seventh year running.

The ladies' champ was Kathleen Muir and the seniors millennium champion was Alan Bennett.

Gibson also won the singles knockout competition and the club's doubles knockout was won by Clive Jennings and Bob Clarke.
