Ribchester Tennis Club is celebrating the recognition of one of their members at the Lancashire Tennis Awards.

Aileen Gallacher won the volunteer of the year award at the prestigious Lancashire LTA awards ceremony at the Reebok Stadium.

The awards were voted by LTA members across the county.

Aileen has supported the club as club secretary, as a team captain and in running the junior teams for several years.

Aileen said: “It is lovely to get the recognition, not just for me but other volunteers at the club. We have a strong core of young players now who are very supportive towards the club which is great to see.”

Tom Ives, Chair of Ribchester Tennis Club said: “Ribchester is a small village tennis club, dependent upon the efforts of all our members to provide the facilities and activities we do. Aileen deserves this award for the energy and enthusiasm she puts into the club, especially for her role in running the junior teams. Well done Aileen.”
