Re: 1893 Results

Week of March 27-April 2

April 1-3, South African Championships, Port Elizabeth, South Africa (Clay)
Venue: Port Elizabeth Lawn Tennis Club

Singles (Draw=6, plus holder)

1R: Mrs Maclagan-bye
1R: Miss Carpenter d. A. Philps 6-4 6-1
1R: Mrs Shepherd d. F. Philps 6-2 6-3
1R: Miss Hartley-bye

CR: Mabel Grant (holder) d. Mrs McLagan 6-1 6-0

MX: Mabel Grant/Jack Grant d. Mrs Shepherd/Grimmer 8-6 6-1

From “Pastime”, May 3, 1893: “In sunlight that was almost too glaring, the meeting at which the South African tournaments were decided took place at Port Elizabeth on April 1-3. [...] So well had Mrs Maclagan played during the tournament that her chances of gaining the cup in the ladies’ singles did not seem remote when she met the holder, Miss Mabel Grant, who for some time has had the reputation of being almost as good a player as the best gentlemen in South Africa.

“The spectators were not long left in doubt as to what would happen, for Miss Grant showed herself to be so superior at every point to her opponent that she was the easiest of winners. [...] During the tournament a fancy dress ball was given, at which lawn tennis costumes were allowed.”

The South African event was traditionally held over Easter. Other female contestants included Mrs Ethel Davies, Mrs Beatrice Paterson, and Miss Jessica Paterson

-----

April 1-3, Rockferry Lawn Tennis Club, Cheshire, England
Venue: Rockferry Lawn Tennis Club

DF: Maud Higginson/G. Massey d. Miss Beckwith/May Sproule 6-8 6-2 8-6

MX: Asta Broadbent/W. Massey d. Kate Nunneley/J.D. Moffatt default

This annual club tournament did not feature a women's singles event, while the above two doubles were handicap only.
