August 18-23, Buxton Tournament

Two first names:

1R: Ethel Surtees d. B. Noon 6-3 6-1

1R: May Marriott d. A. Simpson 6-3 6-3

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar"(1885): "Although Buxton has held a number of small meetings during the last two or three years, these have always been confined to residents in this popular inland watering-place but so successful have these miniature tournaments proved, that 'ambitious ideas' gained the upper hand, and a fixture on a large scale was resolved upon. A capital committee was got together, comprising representatives from many of the leading clubs in the country, and these worked their hardest to obtain entries for the tournament under notice.

"Mr A.J. Harrison, of the Portland Park Lawn Tennis Club, Newcastle, was asked to fulfil the duties of honorary secretary, and the Buxton authorities were decidedly fortunate in obtaining him. A fairly large number of competitors had always been forthcoming for the meetings here, but such an enormous entry as came to hand was not in the least expected. [...]

"That the promoters of the Buxton meeting were right in attempting a tournament on a large scale is certainly proved by the wonderful success with which the fixture has met. Of course this success is greatly due to the admirable committee that had been induced to take the matter in hand. [...] Charles Grinstead was the largest prize take during the meeting, gaining three first prizes and one third prize. Ernest Browne and John Deykin each secured one first prize and two second prizes. Amongst the ladies Mrs Agnes Watts was the most successful, winning two first prizes while Ethel Surtees gained one first, one second and one third prize, and Connie Butler two seconds.

"We understand that next year two more grass courts will be added to the ground where the tournament was played, and the lake side will also be squared off so as to give greater space than at present. These improvement will, of course, add greatly to the facilities of working the meeting, and more especially so if it assumes anything like the proportions of the present one. The four courts used this season had not been previously played upon since they were most carefully levelled and prepared under the superintendence of Mr Hogg, the head garden, who had got the grass in really capital condition. Mr Ayres supplied the nets posts and balls, and Messrs Brookes the stop nets."

From "The Field Lawn Tennis Calendar" (1885): "That Yorkshire is a sporting county in every sense of the word is well known to everyone, and games and pastimes of all sorts always meet with great support in this what may be called 'home' of sport. Within our own knowledge there are over thirty lawn tennis clubs in the county, and the game
seems to be taken up in every town and village with great enthusiasm.

"A short time ago a meeting was arranged of secretaries from as many clubs as could be drawn together, and these soon decided to hold a tournament open to the county. Officers were soon elected to carry out the opening fixture, and as these received a really large amount of support, three open events were also arranged to take place. Scarborough was the place fixed upon, and a better town it would hardly be able to select, as 'Yorkshire' appears to always congregate in and around that far-famed watering place; and in addition to this, entries for the open events would be sure to visit this 'Queen of the North'. [...]

"The cricket ground had been obtained for the tournament and, of course, with its large amount of space, any number of courts could be provided. Our contemporary 'The Yorkshire Post' had provided the 20.00 badge for the ladies' singles championship..."
