Ruth Simpson won the ladies’ event for the 11th time, beating 2003 champion Tina Favell in the final.

Ady Proctor won the over 35s event for the first time, overcoming the category’s seven-time champion Stones.
Ady also won the Racketball Open, beating 2012 winner Jon Hull 11/5, 11/3, 11/4.
In the racketball over-45s tournament, John Secker took top prize with a 12/10, 11/8, 11/9 win over Stuart Dunlop.
Thomas Johnson and Matt Brown contested the juniors’ final, with Thomas winning 3-0.
Perrie Broughton beat Pete Andrews by the same scoreline to win the main plate.
Pete did, however, overcome Mark Housam 15/13, 15/13, 15/7 in the over-35s plate, and in turn Housam - named the season’s most improved player - won the over 45s plate, beating Paul Smith 3-0 in the final.
