Ralph Macklin was honoured by the Middlesbrough
Borough Council by being awarded their inaugural
Services to Sport Award.
The award is recognition for a lifetime activity in the
game of billiards and snooker which began in 1946.

The 81 year old, whose activities were featured in Billiard
Player edition No. 4, will always be remembered for his
founding of the
Teesside Boys Billiards
League—of which he
is still President.

Albert Hanson, the
Secretary of the Boy’s
Billiards League, and
Secretary of the
EABA, was also a
contender for the
award. Ralph is

annual trophy and his
personal salver.
