England won the Home Internationals at Bowdon, in fine Cheshire weather.

Some of the lower matches took a long time to resolve, with the dry weather exposing Bowdon's bumpy lawns. Only England completed their three tests, winning all of them.

Scotland's no.1, Jonathan Kirby, on a rare appearance, was the player of the tournament, not dropping a game.
