About Us

Albany provides social and competitive tennis for people of all ages (from 4 years upwards) and abilities in a friendly, enjoyable environment. We are a well-established and progressive tennis club with 300 adult, junior and mini-tennis members. There is extensive activity at the club both for members and for several charitable organisations that we support. Albany runs the island’s largest coaching programme catering for everyone from complete beginners (child and adult) to county players. The club is run by an active, easily-approachable committee which believes in the ‘Keep it Simple’ philosophy and encourages members’ involvement in the club’s development, operation and decision-making.

Function Room

We also have an excellent function room upstairs in the clubhouse, with its own dedicated kitchen. It is available for hire for meetings and functions at very reasonable rates. Albany is proud to offer children’s parties too! Up to 20 children spend an hour with one of our coaches and then up to the function room for food and games. Please contact our Social Organiser to discuss your booking requirements.

Getting Here

The club is located a 5 minutes walk from the NSC, and a 5 minutes drive from central Douglas, just off one of the main arterial routes into the capital. We have a car park plus plenty of street  arking in the area. (We kindly ask that if the car park is full you park your car thoughtfully with consideration for our neighbours). Bus routes 1, 1H, 2, 4B, 10, 10A, 11, 12, 12A all run past the end of the estate on which Albany is situated and routes 21, 21A, 21B, and 21H stop only a short walk away.

History

Albany Lawn Tennis Club was formed in the early 1920s. Starting on courts at Albany Road, the club later moved to Laureston Grove, two sites in Victoria Road and Nobles Park. In 1965 the Committee proposed that members fund-raise to buy land and develop private facilities. An acre of farm land was purchased for 485.00 GBP. It required a lot of preparation with members acquiring "skills" in fencing, and laying hardcore as a base for the courts. The club moved to the current Ballaughton Meadows site in 1971. The first Clubhouse was a railway container, later replaced by a builder’s hut which in turn was replaced in 2001 with a splendid two-storey clubhouse. The club has staged the TENNIS event for the Island Games in 2001. Our facilities are used by the IOMLTA for county training, Championships and Veteran Inter-county matches.
