ELLESMERE Port City Tennis Club has been presented with the national Clubmark Award by Cheshire Lawn Tennis Association President Barbara Bloor.
The presentation was made during the club’s annual awards evening, attended by former junior champion Phil Leighton, where they acknowledged the success of their under 12 and U14 boys teams.
Both teams became Aegon National Junior League champions, while the club’s U10s A Team won the Wirral Junior League championship.
The club also had five members selected to represent Cheshire last year.
But the biggest cheer of the night from the 150-strong crowd went to 11-year-old Eden Richardson.
The Ellesmere Port ace received a special recognition award after earning her place as Great Britain’s number two player in the U12 team and being selected to represent her country over Christmas.
