With 8 mixed doubles teams participating, the VOMPC’s annual Winter League’s regular season got underway in late January and lasted until mid-March. Finishing up the regular season in first place was the team of Barbara Hall/Peter Mathis with a 6-1 record. On Sunday, March 18, the playoffs were contested for the title of League Champions. The semi-finals saw the teams of Holly Sammons/Patrick Vaslet vs. Shannon Bowman/Gilles Karpowicz and Erin McTaggart/Jimmy Flour vs. Barbara Hall/Peter Mathis, with the teams of Shannon/Gilles and Barbara/Peter emerging victorious. The final game can only be described as a lesson in excellent pointing by Shannon, as she and Gilles easily beat Barbara and Peter, 13-4. The team of Erika Schmitt/Frank Pipal won in the Consolante division.
In addition to the aforementioned teams, the following also participated in the league:
