Trans Asia Hotel, who had 03 players in the Open Singles Quarter's and figured in a home and home open doubles final, annexed the overall championship for the first time. Aitken Spence Travels missed the overall championship by a whisker, as Subramaniam was compelled to give a walk-overs in the Men's open. Doubles and Veterans Doubles, due to the absence of his reliable partner, Renuka Hotel's, Ravi Thambiayah, who had to travel abroad unexpectedly. Last year Subramaniam won all four men's titles and the championship for his form as well.
