April

early April, British Covered Courts Championships, London, England (Indoors on wood)
Venue: Hyde Park Club

FI: May Jacks d. Maud Shackle 6-0 6-1

This was the inaugural women’s singles event at this tournament. A Challenge Cup was on offer for a number years in the women’s singles event. The men's event started in 1885.

-----

April, South Austalian, Adelaide

FI Maisie Parr won

-----

Date unknown, Natal Championship, Durban

FI N. Hickman d. Mabel Grant 6-3 3-6 6-3

-----

Circa mid-April, Ceylon Championships, Nuwara Eliya, Ceylon

FI: Miss Wynniatt d. Miss Watson 6-1 6-1

From "Pastime", May 28, 1890: "Miss Wynniatt, the holder of the Ladies' Championship, was challenged by Miss Watson, but again secured the title."

If true this calls into question out current 1889 result:

Per Jimbo:

Check 1889, because August 18, 2013, you wrote this result:
FI: Mrs Norman d. Miss Watson 5-7, 6-2, 6-3

That denies that Miss Wynniatt was the holder of the Ladies' Championship.
