“The second Easter hard court tournament at Scarborough was an unqualified success, the entry showing a great increase in numbers over the preceding year; this being so, it was extremely fortunate that the players and executive alike were favoured with the most delightful weather imaginable [...]

“The ladies’ singles created a surprise, for few people expected that Mrs Mary Welsh, the holder, would be seriously extended. Not only was she extended, but in the final round she was beaten by Mrs E.F. Wilkinson of Northamptonshire. The winner closely approximates to a one-shot player, that shot being a forehand drive, but when she can bring the stroke into action she is difficult to beat, for this shot is forceful in the extreme.

“Mrs Welsh found the surface of the court uncongenial for her undercut service, which keeps so low on the clinging grass surface and skids so uncannily on wood. The rubble surface had the effect of slowing down the ball at the pitch and inviting a punch—and Mrs Wilkinson punched. From the point of view of tactics, Mrs Welsh was by far the better player, but she seemed unable to get enough pace on her shots to attack Mrs Wilkinson's backhand, with the result that the flow of hard drives was sufficient to secure a victory for the less fancied player in a three set match.”
