Summary

With only eight players, and none of the top British women, this event was not of the top international calibre. Edith Hannam, who won the event without losing a set, had made it to the All-Comers’ final at Wimbledon in 1911. Born Edith Boucher, she married Francis Hannam in 1909 and settled briefly in Canada, after which she stopped competing. But on returning to Britain she resumed playing, and won five Welsh singles’ championships between 1912 and 1923.
