The 33rd edition of the Dala Hard Court Championship came to a fitting end on Saturday, with the men’s and women’s singles final.

A host of players competed at the national event, but here are those who emerged top of the heap in the different categories.

A 6-2, 6-0 victory over Aanu Aiyegbusi gave Oyinlomo Quadre her first Dala Hard Court women’s singles title. The 16-year-old had expectedly moved through the draw to reach the final without dropping a set, before producing a dominant display against Aiyegbusi to emerge victorious.

The 22-year-old put up a solid, solid display to beat Emmanuel 6-3, 6-3, capping off a sensational run in the ancient city.
