The victory saw Rednall repeat her heroics of 2014, when she defeated Norwich’s Rebecca Field in the final.
Falkner, a gold medallist at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, was looking to win a record fourth title, against 2015 runner-up, Rednall.
“I was really pleased with how I played, I was pleased with the first set – I built up a good lead and was able to defend it, but Ellen came back at me in the second,” said Rednall.
