Albany News 15th March 2018

by Pat Sharp

Mini Tennis members please note that on Saturday, at the change over from the 12pm and 1pm groups we will be taking a photo for our Junior & Mini Tennis sponsor – Auxesia Ltd. BOTH groups will be in the photo. Also, if Orange and Green ball players are at the club they will be included. If you already have an Auxesia sponsored shirt PLEASE wear it. If yours is too small bring it and perhaps I can swap yours with a new bigger one for £5. Anyone who doesn’t have a shirt I do have some which are £10. I want to see as many as possible in Auxesia shirts – not football shirts this week please. This photo will be on facebook, Auxesia’s website and Albany’s website – please help us to make a really good photo. The last time we did this in 2016 it was a great photo.

The Nedgroup Junior Open tournament commences on Saturday with Orange ball matches from 10am and Green ball matches starting at 2pm. All players should now have their 1st match times.

It is renewal time again and this is to inform you that your application form is in the club house. Please collect it as the cost of postage is high and it will save the club a significant amount of money. As you may remember, to get the discount payment must be made by 31st March 2018.

Enclosed in the envelope is another form which we now ask you to sign to meet with new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations), which come into force very soon.  If we do not receive one of these from you (one for each member please, not one per family) we will not be able to use your contact details for any communications regarding club events, coaching, information & newsletters, indoor bookings or in an emergency.  It is, therefore, important that you send it back with your renewal form to – Mrs Jan Gaskill, 40 Ard Reayrt, Laxey IM4 7QP.  

Your co-operation in this matter will save the Membership Secretary a lot of administration and time.
