1R: Miss Mabin d Miss Moore 6-1 6-4
1R: Miss Kennedy d Miss Leggatt 6-2 6-0

FI: Miss Kennedy d Miss Mabin 6-5 6-3

CR: Kate Nunneley d Miss Kennedy 6-1 6-0

Doubles

Won by holders Kate Nunneley/Miss Trimmell as there were no challengers.

Miss Kennedy was troubled by a blistered hand and her racquet was repeatedly knocked from her hand in attempting to return the fast strokes of her formidable opponent. Due to an absence of entries, Nunneley and Miss Trimnell retained the doubles title by walkover.

The lighter ball used (Slazenger's) proved somewhat puzzling to (most of the) Wellington competitors.
