Draw notes:

The French Championships are renewed after a 6 year hiatus due to the Great War. The event is still Closed to non-French Nationals. The Challenge Round, where the defending champions "sit out" awaiting the winner or winners from the main draw, is also retained.

In doubles Blanche Amblard and Suzanne Amblard did not defend their doubles title from 1914. The other 1914 champions (Marguerite Billout in singles and Suzanne Lenglen/Max Decugis in mixed) wait for their challengers.

Missing full names for:

Mme Poupon/A. Poupon in the mixed doubles.
