Margaret Cobb, Chairman of Lady Bay Tennis Club, was presented with the Midlands Volunteer of the Year Award by Peter Bretherton, President of the LTA, at The O2 Arena on Monday.
The winners of the 2012 British Tennis Awards were presented with their trophies at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals on Monday recognising those volunteers who give so much of their time to the sport; from working behind the scenes as a committee member to organising local leagues and building relationships to positively promote the sport.
The winners were invited to The O2 arena to receive their awards which were presented by LTA President Peter Bretherton in the Hospitality Suite, they then went on to watch some world class tennis.
Margaret has been the driving force behind the development of Lady Bay Tennis Club. She has been responsible for fundraising and writing funding applications whilst also continuing to grow the club’s membership and activity programme. Andy McFeeters (Tennis Development Manager for Nottinghamshire) says that Margaret is “a great example of somebody with a “can-do” attitude who has fought unceasingly to make her club a better place”.
Well done, Margaret!
