Nine pairs entered the Club's Mixed Nominated Pairs competition, which played out as two sections over five rounds.

Heading into the fifth and final round on Sunday morning, two pairs in each section were in contention to qualify for the final.
Section A had Sandy Joubert (with Avril Kotze) face Jean Joubert (with Garry du Toit) both without a loss. In a tight game, Jean emerged victorious.
Section B was dominated by defending champions Charlotte Morland (with Wouter du Plooy) who were yet to lose a game. They came up against Sheena du Toit (with Des vd Smit) who needed to win by a margin of 11 shots to advance to the final. Charlotte won to face Jean in the final.

The final was neck and neck with each team trading the shot bowl with every delivery. It was only in the last 3 ends that Jean and Garry broke the pattern to go on and become the Club's 2011 Mixed Nominated Pairs champions.
