The 10-year-old, who goes to Lothersdale Primary School, has played tennis for five years, starting at Skipton before moving to Clitheroe, and also plays at the Bolton Tennis Academy.

Tegan’s coach Elizabeth Thomas - a former GB number eight - took a team of four to Birmingham to play a team from Exeter, and the team not only won the cup, but also Great Britain Fed Cup jackets, sent by Judy Murray.

Tegan won three of her four matches, competing in both singles and doubles.
