Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

The Polish National Championships (1921-1945)

Lawn tennis tournaments were being held in Poland, more accurately the Polish Lands, before World War One (at that time Poland was very different geographically from what it is today). In the early years the sport was played mainly by people from an upper class, if not an aristocratic background.

The earliest tournaments were played in cities such as Krakow and Lodz. This is reflected in the fact that the first Polish National Championships tournaments were held in those cities during the earliest years of its existence. The first edition took place in Krakow in September 1921, three years after the end of World War One, when the collapse of the imperial system in Europe resulted in significant territorial changes in Poland.

In the early decades of its existence the Polish National Championships, which was always an outdoor tournament, was held in a different city each year, in either August and/or September. In later years it was held earlier in the calendar, usually around early to mid-June. The surface used was always clay.

The early Polish National Championships did not feature a women’s doubles event, while the mixed doubles event became a fixed feature only from 1925. When the women’s doubles event was held for the second time, at the 1927 edition of the tournament, Jadwiga Jedrzejowska was on the winning team.

Although Poland had produced talented female players in the past, such as Wiera Richter and Wanda Dubienska, none of them possessed the talent of Jadwiga Jedrzejowska. For many years from 1929, when she first won the women’s singles title, Jadwiga Jedrzejowska would dominate the women’s events whenever she took part in the Polish National Championships tournament.

Few, if any, tennis tournament were held in Poland during World War Two, and Polish players were prohibited from taking part in the ones that did take place. The Polish National Championships were not held again until 1945. The location for the tournament in that particular year was Krakow, while the winner of the women’s singles event was, again, Jadwiga Jedrzejowska, herself a native of Krakow.

Mark, last May 11 you already posted this honour roll
Official Tournament Winners by Event

then I added it, but in the last weeks you have posted in our yearly threads other results for Norfolk Championships, played in Norwich, not Cromer, where the events seemed Cromer Tournaments only.
So in Norfolk Championships roll I have replaced the Cromer's results with Norwich's results.

The mistake was yours, because in your thread "1903" you posted on May 20, 2010, this tournament oddly held in Felixstowe.
1903

Then your mistake was transferred in our "1903 results" thread
1903 results

but, as you have seen, in this tournament's honour roll I had written this note:
" * it's probably a mistake, because Felixstowe doesn't belong to the Cinque Ports, either their Limbs or their Antient Towns or Connected Towns."

So if now you confirm that it was a mistake, correct your 1903 thread too.
