All England Mixed Doubles Championship (Draw=23)

SF: Agnes Morton/Stanley Doust (Aus) d. Theodore Mavrogordato/Mabel Parton 6-3 5-7 6-4

"The ladies' singles proved a veritable triumph for Mrs. Lambert Chambers. Never, except, perhaps, occasionally at Wimbledon, has she been seen to such advantage. She successfully defeated Miss Manser, Mrs. Larcombe, Mrs. Parton, and Miss Morton without losing more than four games in a set. It seemed almost impossible for her to hit the ball out, while at the same time she was hitting the ball as hard as she has ever done and keeping a wonderful length. It was bad luck for Mrs. Larcombe to meet her in the second round, especially as it was Mrs. Larcombe's third year for the cup.

The All England Mixed Doubles Championships was again won by the holders, Parke and Mrs. Larcombe, who thus became the owners of the much-coveted cups which have been in existence since 1897. Doust and Miss Morton had done well in beating Mavrogordato and Mrs. Parton in the semi-final and Brookes and Mrs. Chambers in the final, but never got going in the Challenge Round at all. Parke and Mrs. Larcombe took up an impregnable position at the net, and all the efforts of their opponents to dislodge them were in vain.

The open ladies' doubles fell to Mrs. Chambers and Mrs. Larcombe, a partnership impossible to defeat by any of the pairs competing. Miss Morton and Miss Manser did well to take a set from them, but never looked like winning the match."

MX: Miss E.M. White/Frank H. Jarvis d. Miss M. Jackson/G. Nicholls 6-0 6-1

"A largely increased entry was received for this meeting this year, and in consequence the three days allotted to it were found to be insufficient, and short sets had to be played in the handicap events. Play, too, had to commence early on the Saturday morning, and by these means every event, with the exception of the men's open doubles, was brought to a definite conclusion.[...]

The surprise of the meeting was the defeat, in the ladies' singles, of Miss L. Jackson by Miss L. Wilkinson. This was Miss Wilkinson's first tournament this year, and she showed a vast improvement over her form of the past two seasons."
