Summary:

At the onset it was known that holder Juliette Atkinson would not attempt to retain her title. There was great regret that Atkinson did not defend her title, especially in light of the great final of 1898 with Westerner Marion Jones . Jones went through the draw with ease-her biggest challenges coming in her opening round, when Miss Lycett extended her to 6-4 in the second set, and then in the last set of the final vs Ethel Banks. Miss Banks was a local from the Belmont Club. For the first two sets of the final Jones exploited the Banks backhand. Only the last set provided any thrills, deuce being called repeatedly. Both ladies performed almost exclusively from the back-court.

Strangely enough the doubles final score mirrored the singles, with Jane Craven and Myrtle McAteer romping to victory. Locals Elizabeth Rastall and Albert Hoskins won over a tiny field of four in the mixed.
