Also, you didn't specify in the main section why the women's singles final was not played at Beckenham in 1905 and 1909, and where it was eventually held in both years.

Thanks Mark, now I will correct Legh and Coles.
As you can see, I have copied the list of old thread, where there are some notes far down, in which is already written that 1905 final was postponed to Wimbledon, and 1909 final was postponed due to rain and not played at Beckenham.
But now I will specify that was rain the cause of 1905 final postponed.

I have added the German Covered Championships, posted by Newmark in the old thread, and supplemented by me with runners-up, scores, and other years.

I can add almost all of the first names, the nationalities of overseas players and the results for the players and years listed above (I'm sure Rollo knows most of this himself, or at least where such information can be found):

Wiesbaden, Germany

Held circa mid-May on clay courts in Wiesbaden, this tournament became one of the most important of the early German tournaments. An open women's singles event was held there for the first time in 1903.

Here are the results for the years 1903-14:

1903 M. Stonham (GBR) d. Luise Berton 6-0, 6-2
1904 Lucie Bergmann d. Luise Berton 6-3, 6-1
1905 Lucie Bergmann d. Hedwig Neresheimer 6-1, 6-3
1906 Adine Masson (FRA) d. Lucie Bergmann 4-6, 6-0, 6-1
1907 Hedwig Neresheimer d. Rosamund Salusbury (GBR) 2-6, 6-3, 9-7
1908 Marie Dufrénoy (BEL) d. Hedwig Neresheimer 6-3, 6-2
1909 Hedwig Neresheimer d. Dagmar von Krohn 6-3, 6-2
1910 Hedwig Neresheimer d. Eveline Nutcombe-Quicke (GBR) 6-0, 6-4
1911 Hedwig Neresheimer d. Eveline Nutcombe-Quicke (GBR) 6-1, 6-0
1912 Mieken Rieck d. Lilly Salin 6-4, 9-7
1913 Nelly Bamberger d. Lilly Salin 6-3, 6-0
1914 Elizabeth Ryan (USA) d. Nelly Bamberger 6-2, 6-2

The main sources for the above results are the contemporary German-language publications "Spiel und Sport" and, especially, "Der Lawn-Tennis-Sport" and "Lawn-Tennis und Golf".

Thanks for adding the names Mark-not to mention finalists and scores too. I do have a master list, but it's not always in the same place as some of my rare books or sources, and I hesitate to rely solely on my memory. I was looking up that Swiss info you requested and came across the Wiesbaden list.

Per John Barrett Eveline Nutcombe-Quicke was also known as "Betty".

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

This is shaping up quite well Jimbo. If you ever do need names or clarifications you can always ask us.

And the day you are totally caught up in formatting it all the way you like it let me know-because I have a ton of other events I can add as well!

Thanks for taking up this task.

I have increased these tournaments: County of Cumberland Champs., Australian Capital Territory Champs., Manly Seaside Champs., MCC Autumn Champs., Metropolitan Champs. of Sydney, New South Wales Hard Courts Champs., South Australian Champs., New Zealand Champs., Stanford, Stuttgart, Bristol.

Thanks to Rollo and Newmark that are already posting new events here!

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

I have increased the Austrian Championships.

I insert 2 honour rolls taken from official programmes: Austrian Championships, and Rodenstock Ladies Cup held in Kitzbuhel, that in 1961, 1965, 1967, and from 1969 was valid as Austrian Championships.

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

Hello, Mauro,

I can help a little with some information on the West of England Championships tournament, for the following years:

1881, 1882 and 1885: Grace Gibbs was the G. Gibbs in question. I found her name in a biography of Lottie Dod (not the one by Alan Little).
--

1895 Mrs O'Neill was more than likely Madeline O'Neill
--

1934 G. Harry was runner-up; 1935 Gethyn Harry was the winner again. This was probably the same player.
--

1937 Hilda Sperling -> Should be Hilde.
--

1940 Kay Stammers Menzies d. Peggy Scriven 8-10 6-3 6-3. As far as I know, all tournament play in England ended circa 3 Septmeber 1939, with Britain's declaration of war on Germany. It's very unlikely that Bristol (if that was the venue) would have been an exception to this.
--

1954 divided between Pat Ward e Heather Brewer. Spot the Italian.
--

You say that the West of England Championships tournament was held in Bath up until 1895. Do you know where it was held in 1896 or from 1920 onwards?
--

Mark

Re: Official Tournament Winners by Event

The German Championships/German Open

An open, international women’s singles event was first held at the German Championships in 1896. The venue for the years 1896 and 1897 was the Uhlenhorst Club in Hamburg; from 1898-1901, the German Championships were held in Bad Homburg, a popular spa town in the state of Hesse. In 1902, the tournament returned to Hamburg; from this year onwards for a number of years it was held alternately at the Uhlenhorst Club and the Eisbahnverein vor dem Dammtor, the latter being another lawn tennis club in Hamburg.

Certain sources state that the German Championships were held in Berlin in the years immediately following the end of World War One (1920-27), but this is very unlikely, and the tournament was probably held in Hamburg once again during that particular period. As a consequence of World War One, tournaments in German-speaking countries were closed to overseas players in the years 1920-27, but became open to them again in 1928, when a large contingent of Australian players dominated the first truly international German Championships to be held for many years.

From 1928-35 and 1937-39, the tournament was definitely held in Hamburg. The German Championships were not held in 1936 because Germany was hosting the summer Olympic Games in that year, nor was the tournament held in the years 1940-47, due to World War Two and its consequences.

From 1948 to 1978 (inclusive), the tournament was once again held in Hamburg. From 1971-79, it was officially known as the German Open. In 1979, the women’s events were moved to a different venue and city, the Rot-Weiß lawn tennis club in Berlin; the men’s events continued to be held in Hamburg. In 1979, the women’s tournament was also moved up the calendar, to late May; the tournament as a whole had originally been held circa mid-August. The surface was always clay.

No women’s German Open was held in 1980. From 1981 until 2008, the women’s German Championships tournament had the following official names:

1981-1988 German Open
1989-1990 Lufthansa Open
1991-1992 Lufthansa Cup German Open
1993-2000 German Open
2001-2002 Eurocard German Open
2003 MasterCard German Open
2004 Ladies’ German Open
2005 Qatar Total German Open
2006-2008 Qatar Telecom German Open

In 2008, the women’s events at the German Championships were discontinued. A men’s tournament continues to be held in Hamburg.

Exmouth

Inaugurated in 1881, the Exmouth tournament was one of the earliest English tournaments to feature a women's singles event. Exmouth is a port town situated at the mouth of the river Exe in the eastern part of the county of Devon, in south-west England.

The Exmouth tournament was initially held in early August, on grass courts. It appears not to have been held at all in the years 1900-18.

Here are the results for the earliest years during which the tournament was held:

1881 Lilian Cole d. E. Belfield 6-0, 6-0
1882 Lilian Cole d. C. Taylor 6-4, 6-2
1883 Maud Watson d. Lilian Cole 6-4, 6-2
1884 Maud Watson d. Agnes Watts 6-1, 7-5, 6-3
1885 Tournament not held
1886 Maud Watson d. Blanche Bingley 7-5, 0-6, 6-3
1887 Blanche Hillyard d. Maud Watson 6-4, 6-4
1888 Blanche Hillyard d. Miss Bryan 6-3, 6-1
1889 Tournament not held
1890 Lilian Pine-Coffin d. Mrs. D.K. Hole 6-1, 5-7, 6-4
1891 Edith Austin d. Lilian Pine-Coffin 6-3, 9-7
1892 Lilian Pine-Coffin d. Miss Bryan 8-6, 4-6, 6-2
1893 Lilian Pine-Coffin d. Miss Bryan 6-4, 6-2
1894 Lilian Pine-Coffin d. Helen Jackson 6-2, 6-3
1895 Helen Jackson d. Jane Corder 6-0, 3-6, 6-3
1896 Tournament not held

1898 Tournament not held

1881, 1882 and 1885: Grace Gibbs was the G. Gibbs in question. I found her name in a biography of Lottie Dod (not the one by Alan Little).
--

1895 Mrs O'Neill was more than likely Madeline O'Neill
--

1934 G. Harry was runner-up; 1935 Gethyn Harry was the winner again. This was probably the same player.
--

1937 Hilda Sperling -> Should be Hilde.
--

1940 Kay Stammers Menzies d. Peggy Scriven 8-10 6-3 6-3. As far as I know, all tournament play in England ended circa 3 Septmeber 1939, with Britain's declaration of war on Germany. It's very unlikely that Bristol (if that was the venue) would have been an exception to this.
--

1954 divided between Pat Ward e Heather Brewer. Spot the Italian.
--

You say that the West of England Championships tournament was held in Bath up until 1895. Do you know where it was held in 1896 or from 1920 onwards?
--

Mark
Thanks Mark, I have made your corrections.

You can see here, in the yearly threads, the venue of the Championships.
For example, in the thread "1896" is written: "According to "The Field", this tournament was held in Bristol this year."
And from 1920 is always written that was held in Bristol.

About 1940, in the post #108 of the old thread "Tournament Winners by Event" , "the computer" has published that edition 1940, but I had doubts me too and I have written it with asterisk.
