Peel hosted the Lancaster Cup men’s doubles with 27 pairs taking part.

At the end of the competition it was two new names on the trophy with the South Ramsey duo of Tony Hart and Lee Dawson winning the final against home greeners Dougie Allan & Gordon Corrin 21-13. With the score at 13-9 to Hart/Dawson they conceded a four to allow Allan and Corrin to level the score at 13-13. This kick started Hart and Dawson to respond by running out to take a deserved 21-13 win.

Losing out in the semis to the winners were the home pairing of Alan Cromwell & Tony Carroon (14-21), whilst the other semi was well contested with home greeners Brian Lindsay & Peter Greenlees losing out 18-21 to Allan and Corrin.
