The finals of the three grades were held on Tuesday 13 September, with many interesting matchups. The Premier final saw a close match to begin with between Vance Kelly of the Waterloo Wasps against James Harter of the Empire Entertainers. Vance won in four sets, each of which had only a two point margin. From then on each of the following matches were won three straight by the Wasps who ran out 6-0 winners. Vance and Hayden Tapp each won two singles while Sean Hanson won his only match.

The Division One final also featured Empire and Waterloo teams but this time the Empire Enforcers overcame the Waterloo Wolves by 8-3. Andrew Maguire found some of his best form to be unbeaten but had solid support from the others in the team, Brendyn Shaw and Tony Rutledge.

The closest fixture was the Division Two final between two Empire teams. The Empire Elms finally beat the Empire Egrets 6-4, winning the last two matches in close five setters which could have gone either way. Vladimir Visotskiy, Soichiro Eguchi and Yudi Yudistra were the winning team. In a 3v4 fixture, The Combo beat Waterloo Whales 7-3.

In an unofficial “Plate Grade Championship” six players from Division One not involved in the final played a round robin. Liam Buckrell went through unbeaten to claim the win, with Darrell Brown 2nd and Mat Hobbs 3rd.
