Seven players competed in an all-play-all block.

Mark Avery and David Maugham both won their first 5 games, with a triple peel in each game.

In their decider, Maugham made the first hoop, but an error gave Avery the first break.
Maugham mysteriously gained the innings, and soon triple peeled his opponent.

Avery rolled to hoop 1 from the East boundary, but failed the hoop.

Maugham hit a 20-yarder, then a couple of good croquet strokes established a 3-ball break.

This he finished, ending Avery's run of four consecutive Newport Opens.

Andrew Hobbs was best of the rest.

1st David Maugham 6/6

2nd Mark Avery 5/6

3rd Andrew Hobbs 4/6
