**COURIER NEWS - 8th November**
by Pat Sharp

She’s done it again – another tournament win for 13yr old Charlotte Clarke – This time she won a grade 4- girls 14 and under event. It was more travelling for Charlotte, this time to the Lawn Tennis Association’s H Q at Roehampton near London. This result qualified her for a place in a grade 3 event on December 1st and again it’s the long journey to Roehampton. This latest venture included returning to Heysham Sunday night for the 1.45am ferry but it was worth it. Her results were: 1st rd. – 4/0 4/1 versus a 6.2 player (the same as Charlotte); q/f 4/0 4/2; s/final 4/0 4/1 and in the Final she beat the no.1 seed who has a 6.1 rating 4/1 4/0. This win has given her a place in a grade 3 event on December 1 – again at Roehampton which means another long journey. These successes are due to her hard work with her coach, Ian Watson, plus financial support for travel expenses from 5 companies plus a private donation. I do hope the people involved realise just how much difference this finance has made to her opportunities to play in the UK to gain experience against tougher opposition. We have another 5 or 6 juniors who could follow in her footsteps but finance for travel to the UK is quite a barrier. If anyone can suggest a company that I could approach, please let me know.

This Friday and Saturday the Friday Morning Ladies are supporting Children in Need with the sale of Pudsey Bear cakes. Please call in on Friday to enjoy Jan’s baking and make a donation! Parents of the Mini members who will be at coaching on Saturday please remember to bring your spare cash and help Albany raise a lot of money for children who are far worse off than ours.

Reminders –Albany Club Championships sponsored by Auxesia Ltd – 15 – 17 November. Entries close at 7pm on Tuesday 13 November. Entry forms should be left in the club’s white post box or e-mailed to ianwatsonpts@manx.net

Wednesday 28 November – 6.30pm – the club’s AGM. Please find time to attend.

The LTA Club Forum scheduled for next Wednesday, 14 Nov. has been postponed.

I hope all our league players have ordered tickets for the League Dinner & Prize Presentation next Friday (16th). If not contact Jackie Russell immediately to order.

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.

Thanks as always to our Captains and to all those that have supported and played in the Leagues last Winter and through this Summer – win or lose – it is good to see so many of you out playing and representing Albany LTC. We are having a break from the Winter League, and will start again in April 2019, when I hope to see you all playing in the Leagues again, along with a few more.

I look forward to seeing you at the Presentation Night – you are all welcome whether you played in the League matches or not, whether your team won or lost – please do come along and join other Albany members for a social night.

I will be collecting numbers for the Dinner – so please e-mail ( captain@albanyltc.co.uk )or message me ( 414349) (and let me know any special food requirements). Could you please leave any cheques in the white post box in the Albany Clubhouse – in an envelope with your name and marked for my attention. Payments can be made direct – details are on the attached poster, please let me know when confirming numbers, how payment has been made. Numbers have to be with the Douglas Golf Club by 10 November, so please can I have payments and numbers by the 9 November.

Thanks again for all your support.

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!

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.

  

   

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
  • Tuesdays 7:00pm to 9:30pm
  • Wednesdays 10:30am to 12:30pm
PLUS for Ladies only, the fabulous Friday Morning Ladies on Fridays from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The indoor court is reserved for all these sessions so play will be possible in any weather.  Please note that where tournaments are running, some of the social sessions may have to be shortened or cancelled.
