Summary:

Two singles rounds were contested on opening day.

Brooklyn player Juliette Atkinson sweeps all before her, winning the triple crown. The Washington Times reported, "Her strokes were sure and she was remarkably quick on her feet."

In the doubles final Moore's backhand and the play of Amy Williams "up close" 9in other words at the net) kept the third set close.
