Congratulations to Sean Drewry on winning the IOMLTA County Closed Championships men’s singles and the Men’s doubles, with Rob Comber. Sean was also r/up in the Mixed Doubles with Elena Snidal. That will be a nice warm up for them before they travel with the Island tennis team to Gibraltar next week for the Island Games

Equiom Junior Open will start on Monday 8 July with the Mini red, orange and green events being played on Saturday 13 July as well as the other age group finals. Entry is on line and the entry date has been extended to Wednesday 3rd July at 6pm. More information contact Ian Watson (496293) or ianwatsonpts@manx.net . Please enter promptly – there will be events for all age groups provided the entry is good.
Mini Red coaching will be on as usual at 12noon and 1pm tomorrow (Saturday). New players aged 4yrs or older should turn up at 11.45am.

Wednesday saw the nets put up and the re-painted courts ready for play. The fine weather has enabled the club to re-open the outdoor courts as planned and my word the courts look good.

The indoor court is back to the normal booking system and thanks to everyone’s patience whilst the work was carried out.

Well the good news is, that after months of planning, weather checks, e-mails etc the men arrived on Tuesday to repaint the courts. The weather was perfect for the job on Wednesday and all was completed the same day. My word they look really smart. The paint requires about 5 or 6 days to cure, so they are not available for play before next Wednesday. If the nets aren’t up PLEASE don’t go on the courts. So the rules for use of the indoor court are as all members have been informed.

The Race Night held at the club last Friday and organised by members of the IOM Island Games Tennis team raised at least £1000 towards the team’s transport and hotel costs. The team wish to thank the companies who sponsored a race or donated raffle prizes and all who came on the night. the Games in Gibraltar is proving to be more expensive than the last time in Gib as the team are having to stay in hotels – instead of barracks – and airfares are quite high. So if any member can suggest a company who might make a sponsorship donation please contact by e-mail: daphnesnidal@manx.net. Albany has made a small donation to each of the team who is a member of Albany. These cheques were presented to Sean Drewry, Hannah Snidal, Elena Snidal, Laura Feely, Katie Harris, who is home from university in America, and Rob Comber.

On Wednesday 24 July the club will again welcome 18 children and their escorts/interpreters from the Children of Chernobyl holiday scheme. They will have 2hrs of tennis coaching and play sessions and then have lunch provided by club members. We will be asking for a few members to help on court for safety reasons. This event is always enjoyed as much by club members as by the children. More details nearer the time.

CONGRATULATIONS!

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:

OPEN TO ALL

  • Sundays 10:00am to 12:00pm
