The winners of the Club Champions prize draw have also been selected.

John Pope of Framlingham Bridge Club was first out of the hat and wins £400. Malcolm Schofield of Hampton Duplicate Bridge Club was drawn in second and wins £200, and Deirdre Sanders of Patcham Bridge Club wins £100 for being drawn third.

The top scoring players in each county in Master Point categories 4 to 6, and the top scoring players nationally in categories 1 to 3, also receive small prizes.
