11 Oct 2016 – Peter and Glenys Taylor took home the Auckland Mixed Doubles trophy for a record third time after the Championship was contested on the last night of the club's 2016 season.

The tournament was open to both mixed and non-mixed teams, with only the mixed sides eligible to win the title. With the one-night format, each of the twelve teams entered played just three preliminary games.

After these the Taylors had a perfect three-from-three record, as did Garion Long and Ben Frew, and Liz Matthews and Ian Ford.

After a countback of ends won and points scored it was Long and Frew who played the Taylors in the final. A four-point opening end to Long and Frew was the difference between the sides, and they went on to win the match 5-2.  However Glenys and Peter claimed the title, as their opponents were not a mixed team.

The playoff for third and fourth in the tournament (or second and third in the mixed rankings) went to Tessa Farley and Reid Zingel 6-3 ahead of Matthews and Ford.
