The ladies to represent Ayr Curling Club at Aberdeen in the Henderson Bishop National finals are as follows:
Margaret White (skip), Corrie Lawrence, Mary Shaw, Elizabeth Shaw.
Beresford Ladies- Gillian Macdonald (skip), Carol Simpson, Una Semple, Evelyn Girvan.
The finals were then played between team Margaret White and team Beresford Ladies to establish the winners of the ACC Henderson Bishop Trophy, the Mair Shield.
