|OTHER ||Tenille grew up in small town called Parys in South Africa and started playing squash when she was eight years old.|
Although she hasn't had a full time coach (currently living in
Pretoria and coached by Graham Prior once a week) she has enjoyed outstanding junior success.
She held top spot in the national junior rankings from the age of eleven. In 2005 she reached the British Junior Open final and lost in the semis at the
World Juniors in Belgium that year. But even before then in 2004 she was selected for the South African women's team for the Women's World Team Championship in Amsterdam.
Tenille is now the number one woman player of her country and busy playing squash full time and training at a High Performance centre in Pretoria.
