LIVEWIRE’S community tennis programme delivered at Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub has won an LTA tennis award.

Selected from more than 2,100 nominations across 11 categories, LiveWire were recognised by the LTA for their contribution in winning the Community & Parks category award.

The recognition acknowledges the way the programme has made tennis welcoming and accessible to players of all ages, abilities and backgrounds along with the demonstration of safeguarding standards.

LiveWire will now go forward to be considered for the national shortlist in the Community & Parks category.

Emma Hutchinson, managing director of LiveWire, said “The programme at Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub has gone from strength to strength thanks to the hard work of Alexandra Day and Toby Palin.”
