ALBANY TENNIS NEWS
by Pat Sharp 17 April 2019

Will as many of our members as possible help a fellow member, Sean Drewry, by completing a survey which he is conducting as part of his final year for his degree. (E-mailed out to all members). We have always tried to support and encourage our younger members with their studies in various forms. It only takes about 7 minutes and it is really easy. One or two questions might make older members stop and think.

The IOMLTA men’s and women’s leagues started last week and the first set of results is encouraging, considering a lot of people are away during the school Easter holiday. In Women’s division one our A team drew with Douglas A 3-3. Nice to see our juniors in league teams – this match included Aalish Kelly (14). In division two Albany B bt Ramsey A 6/0. Men’s division two Albany B drew 3 -3 with Douglas B at Kensington Road. Slightly different age group here! With “Pistol Pete” Dunworth partnering Alastair Montgomery and David Bufton with Paul Reid. If we have new members who would like to be considered for our league teams please contact Club Captain, Jackie Russell (captain@albanyltc.co.uk) as it’s always good to have a few reserves.

There is still time to enter the free ballot for 10 free one-hour sessions, in the indoor court as a celebration of the court’s 25th Birthday. It will be drawn on Saturday 27 at 1pm. Members and juniors can enter. Also please come along on the day – we will be providing refreshments and the outdoor courts will be available for social tennis. Remembering all the hard work fund raising and the opening by Davis Cup player Nick Brown it brings back lovely thoughts on how far Albany has progressed from playing at Victoria Road and in Nobles Park with a membership of 40 – 50 all seniors.

It will take place at the University of Warwick Tennis Centre from 9am-3pm on Wednesday 29th May.

With there not being any junior coaching over the school holidays, might it be prudent to delete the bookings as there may be members who would like to book as they are free?

CONGRATULATIONS!

The club sends all our best wishes to our Coach, Ian Watson, on becoming a Grandad for the first time! Seth David became UK tennis' next great hope on 24th March 2019!

Recycling Initiative

Jan Gaskill would like to thank members for their help
WELL DONE MEMBERS! - We have just filled the plastic bottle bin for the first time.  Keep up the good work and remember bottles ONLY please, tennis ball tubes are not acceptable (it's a different type of plastic, so they tell me).

Wear it Pink Day 2018

On Friday October 26th Ladies Morning held their annual Pink Friday in aid of Breast Cancer Now, Isle of Man.  They raised £79 from subs and donations and Lisa did them proud with pink balloons and table ware and even pink food!!!!   Pink smarties, pink wafers, pink (strawberry) cheesecake and cup cakes.
It was a great morning despite the weather and they did squeeze in some tennis too.

Road To Wimbledon 2018

Congratulations to all the players who entered this year's Road to Wimbledon event.  On the 15th July, 8 boys and 8 girls competed in the Isle of Man County section of this competition.  The winners, Rich Mirski and Charlotte Clarke, qualified to play at Wimbledon against the other county champions.  The runners up, Jayden Go and Sarah Long, also got to go to Wimbledon for some special coaching sessions. During the week of 13th August, the County champions played in round robin and knock-out matches at Wimbledon.  An Isle of Man player has never progressed from the group stage before, but this year both Roch and Charlotte did and both got all the way to the semi-finals!!  Charlotte even went on to win the girls' tournament altogether.  This is an extraordinary achievement by both players, whose hard work and dedication should be commended, together with that of their parents and of their coach, Ian Watson.  Congratulations to all of you! Photos from Road to Wimbledon 2018 Charlotte's Tournament winning point!

Outdoor Courts

The planned repainting of the outdoor courts, that was due to commence on 13th August, has been postponed.  Given the need for good weather coupled with the availability of the contractors, this is now likely to take place in early summer/late spring in 2019.  In the meantime, we thank you for your help in keeping the courts clear of leaves and pine needles as much as possible.  It is the degradation of these things that is primarily responsible for the levels of algae we experience on the courts.  Following cleaning this year, all courts are currently in good shape; the planned painting is a cosmetic improvement more than a necessity at the moment.

A Glimpse at Our History

Here are the videos shown on the night of the '50 Years at Ballaughton' Celebration Dinner held in September 2016, which shows the timeline of Albany's development over the past 50 years.

  


The club's Annual General Meeting was held at the club on Wednesday 28 November at 6.30pm.  The meeting presented the 2017/8 statutory accounts, which were adopted, and the membership and indoor court fees for 2019/20 were agreed.  David Long was voted in as the club's new Chairman, and we wish him well.  David will take up the info@albanyltc.co.uk e-mail address.  

social-tennis-banner2 All these sessions are a great way to play some tennis and meet friends, and are open to senior members and nominated juniors.  Join in our fun and friendly social sessions held each week on:
