FI: Ethel Larcombe d. Beryl Tulloch 6-1 6-2

MX: Ethel Larcombe/Arthur Dunlop (Aus) d. Beryl Tulloch/George Watt 6-2 6-0

"The ladies' singles was almost a foregone conclusion for, except in the first set against Miss Holman, Mrs. Larcombe was never seriously extended. Miss Tulloch was driving her hardest against Mrs. Edgington and did well to reach the final without the loss of a set; against Mrs. Larcombe she played as though she felt the strain of previous exertions.[...]

Any mixed doubles pair who during the tournament had the misfortune to meet Dunlop and Mrs. Larcombe, found themselves up against an impenetrable brick-wall of apparently infinite height. The entry for the mixed double event was, on the whole, a poor one, no pair being able to cope with the winners who would be quite equal to tackling a strong pair in a men's double."

MX: Madeline O'Neill/Dixon d. Edith Hannam/Yolland 7-5 6-4

"In the ladies' singles Mrs. Hannam retained her cup, but Miss Aitchison put up a fine fight against her in the final. Both ladies were hitting freely, but Mrs. Hannam had a slight advantage in the matter of severity, and also in service. The miss-bounds (of which there were a good many) also affected her equanimity less than her adversary's. Mrs. Satterthwaite and Mrs. O'Neill did about equally well against Mrs. Hannam, but she was not as fully extended by either of them as she was by Miss Aitchison."
