Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

The Derbyshire Championships, Buxton, England

Originally held in 1884, the Derbyshire Championships was for many years one of the most popular tournaments in the British lawn tennis calendar. It was usually held around mid-August.

The tournament still has a special place in the annals of lawn tennis because for many years it was also the venue for the All England Women's Doubles Championships, there being no official women's doubles event at the Wimbledon tournament until 1913.

The Derbyshire Championships tournament was probably discontinued at some point in the early to mid-1950s.
