After a marathon effort 2 weeks earlier to find qualifiers for both the Men's Handicap Singles and Championship Singles, Finals Day  for  the Championship Singles was played on 11 December.
Quarter Final Match ups and Semi Final match ups were as follows, winners in bold.
 
Quarter Finals
 Scott  Harrison v  Warren Tritt
Steve Kirwan v John Thompson
Rex Bell v  Odie Walter
Paul Jerrom  v Chis Watkins
 Semi Finals

Steve Kirwan v Warren Tritt
Paul Jerrom v Odie Walter
The final saw Odie take an early lead but Warren continued the steady and accurate bowling  he had displayed in the earlier games to  level up and then trade the lead with Odie across  the first half of the match.   
The decisive break came  with Warren leading 11-9  where he took two consecutive ends with 3 points in each to stretch out  his lead and was not headed across  what were to be the final four ends,  winning  21-12.
Congratulations to Warren, the fourth different winner in 5 years, showing that the Men's Singles title  is hard       earned and even harder to defend.
