1877 Results

1877

???? Irish Tournament, Dublin, Ireland

Draw=3

????

"In Ireland the 1877 women's championships had a draw of only three. " (Source: page 5 of We Have Come a Long Way: The Story of Women's Tennis. By Billie Jean King. 1988)

Note: The connection, if any, between the Irish events of 1876-1877 and the Irish Championships is unclear. The Fitzwilliam Club, which hosted the championships from 1879, was founded in 1879. The exact location for the events of 1876 and 1877 is uncertain. Could this event and the one in Limerick be the same? King's book hints at a Dublin location for this event, so it is murky at best.
