The talented youngster travelled to Wolverhampton, where she faced some of the country's other top prospects.

Seeded sixth, the 11-year-old defeated top seed Anna Green 3-0 (11-3, 11-7, 11-5) in the semi-finals and second seed Megan Jones 3-0 (11-9, 11-8, 11-8) in the final to claim the title.
It has been a fine run of form for Baig, who only two weeks ago triumphed in the Under-12 National Cup.
“It was a hard competition and I really didn't expect to win at all,” said Baig.
“I thought I would lose in the semi-final and definitely in the final because I'd never beaten Anna or Megan before.”
