27 Sep 2014 – Glenys and Peter Taylor won their second Auckland Mixed Doubles Championship with a 6-1 win over the young brother / sister team of Matt and Victoria Hohaia in the 2014 final.

They Taylors scored singles in the first three ends before their opponents got one back in the fourth. But it was all over in next, a 3-pointer being to much too come back from in a 6 end match. The Taylors first won the title in 2008.

Twelve teams started the championship on 7th September. Auckland's shortage of available ice time forced an abbreviated preliminary round, with all teams playing three 4-end games in the one evening.

Three teams finished the evening with a perfect 3-0 win-loss record – Tessa Farley and Kenny Williamson, 2014 newcomers Paula and Dave McKean, and the Taylors. The Hohaia siblings headed off Davorka Zivkovich and Ray Tomes, the other side with a 2-1 record.

The semi-finals saw comfortable wins to the Hohaias over Farley / Williamson 5-2, and the the Taylors over Team McKean 6-2.
