IT is game, set and match for a Welbeck lady who has been awarded a BEM in the New Year Honours for her services to the village community.

Rita Rhodes, 76, who has run Welbeck Tennis Club with husband Brian since the early 1990s, said she was ‘over the moon’ to have received the prestigious British Empire Medallist honour.

The couple also won the Guardian Rose last November for Services to Young People after they set up the club more than 20 years ago.
