Five schools (including Arthur Terry) entered into the tournament, which followed a round robin / league format. Each school played a match against each other, which included two singles and three doubles games, all being played first to 11 points! NB: Winners of each match decided by the total number of games won.

After playing all four matches / 20 games, The Arthur Terry boys finished with an outstanding 17 wins and just a mere 3 defeats in total. Sadly the 2-3 match defeat inflicted by Fairfax, who were fortunate to have two 'county' badminton players in their squad, proved to be the decisive match of the evening which saw Arthur Terry finish overall runners up to the victors in this game. 5 - 0 whitewashes came in the matches over Bishop Vesey, Bishop Walsh and the competition hosts N.B.A, cementing Arthur Terry's 2nd place finish in the competition.

NB: Overall tournament standings were: 1st Fairfax; 2nd Arthur Terry; 3rd Bishop Vesey; 4th N.B.A and 5th Bishop Walsh.
