Andy Lapthorne and Marc McCarroll both won national titles at the British Wheelchair Tennis Championships at the weekend.

Eastcote's Lapthorne won his second domestic quad singles crown and Ickenham's McCarroll was part of the victorious men's doubles for the second time at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton.

Fellow Ickenham player Jordanne Whiley finished runner-up in the women's singles and doubles, while also collecting the award for Female Player of the Year during the four-day championships.

After a first round by world number three Lapthorne had the toughest possible opening match before overcoming fellow Paralympic doubles medallist Jamie Burdekin 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 in his semi-final. Lapthorne then upped his performance to beat second seed and world number seven Antony Cotterill 6-4, 6-1 in Sunday's final."It's a nice end to the year and after missing the last two Championships for international events, it's nice to have my name on the trophy for the second time and the last twice the title's been played for," said Lapthorne. "Although I wasn't maybe at my best in either match, I'm really focused for 2014 and feel there are great things to come, so I'm ready to use December wisely and constructively before heading to Australia for my January tournaments."

Harrow-born McCarroll also had a first round bye in the men's singles and the British number two reached the semi-finals after a 6-0, 6-0 win over Lancashire's Tony Knappett.

McCarroll saw his challenge come to an end in the last four after a 6-3, 6-4 loss to British number two David Phillipson, but he was unable to take his place in Sunday's finals due to injury, meaning that McCarroll and Gordon Reid were awarded a walkover and their second national doubles title apiece, both previously winning the title partnering Phillipson.

"After a busy year of international competition it's a nice way to end the year, testing yourself against the other players on the Tennis Foundation's Performance Programme," said McCarroll. "It gives me a good focus for my upcoming training. There are plenty of good things to take out of this season and I look forward to coming back stronger in 2014."

Just a few weeks after beating fellow Brit Lucy Shuker for the fourth time this year to secure her place in the year-end NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters semi-finals, world number Whiley met her again in the women's singles final. However, the British number one and four-time British champion had to be content with runners-up honours this time as second seed Shuker battled to a 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory.

Whiley also ended the tournament with the runners-up trophy in the women's doubles. In a final between the 2006 champions Shuker and Louise Hunt and the 2010 champions, Whiley and Lauren Jones, the top seeds prevailed 6-0, 6-2.

Nevertheless, after arguably her best season to date, which included reaching the Singles Masters semi-finals and becoming the first British woman to win the Doubles Masters title, as well as winning her first ITF 1 Series singles titles and her second Wimbledon doubles final, Whiley was named Female Player of the Year at the British Wheelchair Tennis Awards.
