*The later rounds of this event were delayed by rain and played intermittently at later dates.

The doubles final took almost 3 hours before a capacity crowd. The losers had two set points at 3-5 15-40. One set point was wasted when Green hit an easy putaway volley into the net. Much of the time play was contested with one up and one back-Wagner and Green doing the volleying with Casell and Morris scrambling along the baseline. The point total was 140 to 133.

In the singles final on Sept 28 Pollak was horribly off form in very windy conditions. The Times states that "Miss Wagner was exceptionally steady and took malicious advantage of Miss Pollak's weak backhand." A "ridiculous" number of double faults on Helene's part added to her woes. The last game ended with 4 double faults from pollak-3 of the consecutive. The large gallery didn't even get to see one rally of any length.
