Gale force winds are a staple of Bournemouth. The big difference this year is how dry the courts were-with not a speck of rain falling all week. Sue Barker quipped "That was an experience" after dusting off #3 seed Boshoff on a wind swept court.

The final featured the gusty winds common to this event. Clever vet Helga Mastoff kept her composure better than favored Sue Barker, perhaps feeling the pressure to win a home title. Masthoff won $3,640 in taking the title. Sue refused to speak to the press after her defeat.

Attendance was disappointing despite Pepsi-Cola inflating men's prize money 50% higher than 1975. The absence of 1975 winner Virginia Wade (now playing World Team Tennis) may have been another factor in poor numbers. As a result this venerable British event folds without sponsorship after Pepsi pulls the plug.

Draw notes:

#5 Isa Fernandez (dental issues) and #8 seed Ruta Gerulaitus were replaced by lucky losers.
