Chris Carlaw won the 1983 Southland Table Tennis A grade beating Kevin Tapper in the final. Carlaw went through the tournament without dropping a set. Tapper played some good table tennis and managed to get close in the second set - but it didn't matter what he did he just could not get close to Carlaw.
In the semi finals Carlaw beat Philip Brocks - who had an injured foot and Tapper beat William Brocks in four sets.
In the womens Ngaire Garrett came from a 2-0 deficit to beat Nola Falconer 5-2.
This gave Garrett her ninth singles title.
