February 22 - Home players dominated the International Tennis Federation (ITF) 3 Series North West Challenge, the first of seven British-based world rankings on the 2013 NEC Wheelchair Tennis, winning all six titles.
The 15-year-old Hewett claimed his first senior ITF 3 Series singles title as he upset British number three and top seed Marc McCarroll to clinch a 6-3, 6-4 victory in the men's singles final.
"It's absolutely awesome, I can't quite believe it," said Hewett, the top-ranked junior in the world.
"I knew I'd taken Marc to three sets at the Nottingham Indoor towards the end of 2012, so I hoped it would be close again, but I never thought I would win.
"All credit to Marc, he came back to level the second set at 4-4, but I'm thrilled that I held on to win."
In the women's singles Whiley the British number two, claimed her fourth North West Challenge title after beating second seed Christine Schoenn of France 6-1, 6-3.
"I've just come out of a three-month training regime, so it's great to be back to playing matches again and it's always great to win your first tournament of the season," said Whiley.
"It gives me a lot of confidence now going into next week's North East Tournament and who knows, it could be the same final there."
Burdekin secured a local victory in the quad singles final, the world number six and top seed coming from 3-0 down in the second set to defeat world number seven South African and second seed Lucas Sithole 6-2, 7-6.
"I'm delighted to win my first tournament since the Paralympics," said Burdekin.
"I had some time off after the Games and I feel I've got some work to do to get back to how I was playing at London 2012, so it's great to get the win under my belt at my home tennis centre where I train."
In the doubles event, top seeds Hewett and McCarroll paired up in the men's competition, beating Britain's Dermot Bailey and Leonid Shevchik of Russia 6-2, 6-3 in the final.
Meanwhile, Whiley also followed up her singles victory with the women's doubles title. Second seeds Whiley and Evgeniya Korotkina of Russia beat top seeds Lauren Jones and Schoenn 6-4, 7-5.
Britain's Antony Cotterill and Adam Field justified top seeding to retain the quad doubles title after beating South African second seeds Bongani Dhlamini and Sithole 6-1, 6-3.
All of the finalists will now contest Britain's second NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour event of the year, the ITF 2 Series North East Wheelchair Tennis Tournament, which begins on Monday (February 25) in Sunderland and is supported by the Tennis Foundation.
