Several participants defended their titles with both Brenda Carter (65 singles) and Rita Price (85 singles) winning in consecutive years. Carter and her doubles partner, Betty Wachob, also repeated as 65 doubles champions while Dorothy Matthiessen was once again one-half of the winning 75 doubles team. Matthiessen played with Lynn Little this year after winning with Burnett Herrick in 2011. Full results are posted below.
