Blessed Trinity's Year Seven Lucas is hoping to be a big hit in the tennis world.

Lucas, 11, has been playing tennis since he was three-years-old and this year finished runner-up in the Lancashire Under 11 Championships at Bolton Arena.

Lucas qualifies for a number of countries as his mum is Portuguese and his dad Austrian.

He plays at Burnley Tennis Club as well as training under a coach.

“I got involved with tennis through my dad,” said Lucas.  “I admire Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer as well as Stefanos Tsitispas.

“My next big event is the Lancashire Under 12 Championships next year.”
