Laura Lengthorn-Massaro (ENG) bt  Madeline Perry (IRL) 9-2, 9-3, 4-9, 9-6 (70m)
Lengthorn-Massaro successfully defended the women's title she won against the odds last year with a thrilling 9-2, 9-3, 4-9, 9-6 victory over Ireland’s top seed Madeline Perry.
Perry, the Irish number one and world No8, started the match hesitantly - appearing unconvincing in attack and defence which ultimately allowed the defending champion to dominate the opening game and gain the ascendancy in familiar surroundings.
“Madeline never gives up and I knew that I would have to be at my best to beat her,” said Lengthorn-Massaro after netting the third WISPA title of her career. “It’s only the second time I've beaten her on the Tour - hopefully I can continue this form into the Dunlop British Open next week.”
