LYN "Brookie" Brook of Biggenden has been recognised for her volunteer work at the Brisbane International tennis tournament.

As the event entered its fifth anniversary, Brookie and other volunteers were given well-placed seats in Pat Rafter Arena and a five-year service badge for their efforts.

Brookie's volunteering role sees her usher the public into arenas, assist at turnstiles and address and open doors for players leaving the player's area.

"Being acknowledged for my involvement was an honour," she said.

"I have a passion for tennis. I just love it.

"They are always chasing volunteers, so anyone interested in becoming a volunteer should go onto the Brisbane International tennis website around April/May."
