At the Annual General Meeting of Rugby Sport for the Disabled Association awards were presented to members for the 15 Club Championships and the special trophies.

Most of the Club Championships were played as round robins. For the swimming each competitor had to swim 25m twice, 20 minutes apart, and try to get the same time. The competition is organised this way because members have so many different disabilities.

The Mary Clough Award, voted for by the disabled members, is awarded to a person showing promise in their sport. It deservedly went to archer Kevin Rumble.

The Jan Rosser Cup, won by 10-year-old Alexander Powers, is for Endeavour and the Jackie Cowtan Plate, for Happiness and Helpfulness, was given to 12-year-old James Smart.

The senior Godfrey Ingram trophy went to Graeme Mooney and junior James Smart. Senior female Superstars winner, in memory of Pat Ridgway, was Iris Bingham, who also won the wooden plate for overall winner.

Superstars senior male winner, in memory of Alvis Dence was Graeme Mooney and junior winner James Smart.
