The NSW state titles were awarded jointly with the Australian Open title, played at White City. However, an open tournament with a draw of 16 sponsored by Dunlop was held on the same courts in March: This was Margarets first defeat (if a 1967 walkover is discounted) in the NSW in a decade. Mrs King wins the tournament on her fourth attempt.
