Singles: A strong draw witnessed some excellent performances from some of the up and coming players, with Freddie Bristowe pushing Jamie Giddins hard, Lea Van der Zwalmen taking a set off Jonny Whitaker and Ned Batstone being turned over by veteran campaigner Peter Wright. The only upset in the first round was Tom Bomford beating sixth seed, Charlie Braham. The quarter finals ran to form with the top seed emerging without dropping a set to leave the top four seeds, the "Bathurst Four". The first semi-final saw Jamie Douglas beat Jamie Giddins in three extremely tight sets, 6/5 6/5 6/5. While no set points for the latter, the former champion was pushed all the way. The second semi-final saw Ed Kay overcome Peter Wright in three sets, which looked straightforward on paper, but Ed worked hard for the win. The final pitched defending champion Ed Kay against former champion Jamie Douglas. After three long and exhausting sets, Ed was in a tight 2-1 lead - with the seventh game pivotal in each. Jamie came back strongly to level the match and the deciding set was close. However, it was Jamie who took the honours. 4/6 6/4 5/6 6/2 6/3 in 215 minutes of exhilarating match play. Chris Davies, T&RA CEO, presented the famous amateur bowl, thanking tournament director, Luke Danby, for his usual sterling efforts and Ben Ronaldson for his professional team.

Doubles: Freddie Bristowe and Ned Batstone teamed up but were unable to steer past Phil Dunn and James Sohl. The second quarter-final saw Tom Bomford and Lea Van der Zwalmen ease past Luke Danby and Benjamin Jacquin-Turratini - first lady in the semi-finals since 2011. The semi-finals saw the Bathurst Four triumph as the two dominant pairs set up an intriguing final. In a tight match it was some satisfaction for Ed Kay as he and partner, Jamie Giddins, beat former champions, Jamie Douglas and Peter Wright, in three tough sets. 6/4 6/3 6/5, another well-matched final. David Watson, T&RA Chairman, presented the Bailey Cup to the worthy champions; a new pair of names on the trophy.
