The knockout styled event consisted of groups of four, with the top two teams from each group going through to the quarter-finals.
Those to advance were Phil & Marti Pentney, Steve Buttriss & Mike Smith, Phil Locke & Mark Woodall and Harry & John Palmer.
In the last four, the pair of Woodall and Locke beat Phil and Marti Pentney, while the Palmers beat Buttriss and Smith to progress into the final.
After a close contest, it was the Palmers who won in three ends, 11-3, 13-11 and 11-8 over Woodall & Locke to earn festive glory.
The league would like to thank Sam Page-Mitchell for making a Christmas cake for the event.
