Top seeds Garry Dodd and Dawn Morgan will play against 2nd seeds Phil Ogier (pictured) and Sam Kershaw in Saturday's final.
 
Dodd and Morgan were imperious and never looked close to being tested en route. Their semi final opposition was the number 3 seeds Keith Opie and Kay Chivers who managed to get 9 in one end and that was the closest anyone got.
 
Ogier and Kershaw had a straight forward route to the semi finals where they faced a tough test against 4th seeds Liam Robilliard and Chloe Le Tissier. The favourites always held the advantage during leads of 1-0 and 3-1, however they were pegged back to a decider after some nice attacking table tennis from the younger duo. The 7th was closely contested until the latter stages where Ogier and Kershaw won the pivotal points to close it out 11-8.
