The mixed final was replayed on January 7 after the two teams initially split sets With Akhutst/Willard winning the first 7-4 then dropping the seond 4-6. The other event swere completed on January 5.
In the ladies final Bickerton led 5-4 and 6-5 but Akhurst used the length and width of the court to the utmost advantage. In the second set as Bickerton tired her errors became more numerous.
