Thornton's Pavilion Trophy 2017

There were fourteen entries for this competition, which took place on Sunday May 14th, and these were drawn randomly into seven pairs in two groups – one of four pairs and one of three. Each pair played every other pair in their group over either nine or thirteen ends - a total of either 27 or 26 ends. The winners of each group, defined as the pair scoring the most shots, then played a final over eleven ends.

After the conclusion of the round robin stage the shots scored were as follows:

The final was, therefore, between

The winners of the 2017 Thornton's Pavilion Trophy are therefore

Wendy Knowles and Miles Ellis
