In the Men's event, Wellington opened with a good 5 - 3 win over Taranaki, followed up Saturday afternoon with a very good 6 - 2 result over Manawatu/Wanganui and finished the weekend off on Sunday with a commanding 7 - 1  win over Hawkes Bay, to lift the Shand Cup for a 6th year in a row.

In the Sybil Green Salver, Wellington opened with a great 7 - 1 win over Taranaki, then a 3 - 5 loss to Man/Wang, and on Sunday after a good lead in 7 games through the middle of the round, a late rally by Man/ Mang saw the match finish 4 point each, denying Wellington the 5 - 3 result needed for the trophy win, finishing 2nd ahead of Man/Wang and Taranaki, Hawkes Bay triumphing for the 1st time in 7 years. Highlights for Wellington were Elise Barber and Toaiva Faafia, both on debut, having 3 out of 3 wins.
