An unusually bad loss for Bolton. The MCC Tournament was played on the club's grass courts.

The softness of the courts after rain, was blamed for the losses of Frank Sedgman and others in 1949.

The Launceston Examiner says 'Mrs Bolton played poorly'. The Melbourne Argus said 'Mrs Bolton failed badly. Miss Toomey had such poor opposition that she hardly received credit for the excellent tennis she played.'
