Seven team contested the Men’s National Finals – four from London (the Zoo Crew, the Bucs, the Raiders, and the Spankers) as well as teams from Bordon in Hapshire, Frome in Somerset, and Arundel in Sussex.
In Slowpitch Mixed Softball, The Meteors of London beat the Tequila Slammers of the Cuervo Adverstising Softball League (London). The Harvey Wallbangers (brother and sister team to the Slammers) defeated Isherwoods, Champions of the Wild Turkey Design League in the 3rd Place Playoff. The other teams in the nine-team tournament were Scorpions and Outlaws (Windsor), Wild Ones (Borden), Woodhouse Moor (Leeds), and Hit’n’Run and Nice Beaver from Bristol.
In Regional Softball, Elservier Smellysox, the holders, faltered at the end of the Oxford Softball League season, losing their last game to finish 10-1, and then getting knocked out of the playoffs. The Blackwells Beavers shocked the Pergamon Panthers in the Final 26-13.
