MX: Beryl Tulloch/George Watt d. Dorothy Holman/Stanley Doust (Aus) 6-4 6-3

"The record entry received for this year's tournament must have been extremely gratifying to the committee, who had paid special attention to the improvement of the surface of the courts. They had also engaged the services of a professional referee for the first time"

"... Mrs. Edgington and Miss Holman played a most uninteresting—from the spectacular point of view—base-line duel of long duration, in which Miss Holman occasionally relieved the monotony with an advance to the net. Miss Holman ought to have won this encounter as she held the commanding lead of four games to one in the third set. The mixed, which followed on immediately, ended in a not altogether surprising victory for the Queen's Club pair—Watt and Miss Tulloch—who played particularly well, but were undoubtedly helped by Miss Holman's state of exhaustion after her singles final. Watt showed himself to be an excellent exponent of the mixed game, and Miss Tulloch drove with great ferocity. "

FI: Mrs. E.F. Wilkinson d. Mary Welsh 6-3 3-6 6-2

"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. Robin 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."

MX: Mrs Remenda/W Cumming d. Connie Luard (GB)/John Luard (GB) 1-6 6-1 6-3

"The expected really happened in the ladies' doubles, where Mrs. Luard and Mrs. Carruthers were too strong for the opposition. The final of the ladies' singles was marred by the fact that Mrs. Adamsom fell and twisted her ankle at 5 all in the final set; she pluckily continued but was eventually beaten by Miss R. Aighton at 8/10 in a game which was rather overcautious."
