The first Butcombe British Skittles Championships Grand Final

was a roaring success with over 800 skittles and supporters descending on Torquay for the weekend to battle for the British Crown. Local teams were there to defend their titles and many hoped to keep the trophies in Devon. Two new teams were crowned champions, Two Tribes from Exeter and Wiltshire Wonders from Melksham, The wonders being the first team to win for Wiltshire in the 11 year history of the Championships. The Everhopefuls ladies team made skittling history for being the first team to ever win the Championships three times.
