Committee Intro

The Committee was elected at the AGM on 29th November 2017. If there is any matter you wish to be raised at the next Committee meeting, or if you are interested in becoming a Committee member, please contact the Chairman or any of the members below.  Please click on a Committee member’s photo below for more information, or to contact via e-mail.

Albany’s Committee  is open, progressive, inclusive and made up of volunteers.  In this last year, the committee has been comprised of nine members, who have met formally and informally to discuss and manage the club.

It is a friendly group and there are certainly opportunities for more members to be involved – you would be welcomed aboard.

The principles of the committee are:

  • to encourage people of all ages –  juniors and adults – to play tennis, thereby increasing membership numbers
  • to shape and support the tennis programme, competitions, leagues and coaching
  • to ensure that the club is run within its resources, whilst developing for the future
  • to work on issues like fundraising, maintenance, social events and development

The two key strategies that the Committee have chosen to drive the club this year are:

  • Simplify
  • Modernise

Membership Intro

Albany Tennis Club provides a comprehensive tennis experience for all ages and standards inviting participation from complete beginners, to intermediate and advanced levels.

Tennis at Albany is designed to be fun and an ideal sport for all the family, whether you wish to play competitively or enjoy social tennis we offer a full programme of tennis activities.

We pride ourselves on the coaching programme we have established over many years which now offers 10 group coaching sessions each week, plus many more individual coaching hours.  Our highly experienced Club Coach, together with his group of excellent coaches, is on hand to guide you through the learning experience whether through group or individual lessons.

Competitive opportunities are readily available for those wanting to test their on-court prowess. Box leagues, Club competitions and team matches take place regularly throughout the year, with our indoor court allowing play in any weather.

The membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March.  Sometimes reduced memberships are available for new members only who join the club after 1st September.  This reduction is offered at the discretion of the committee and may not always be available.  It will always be the case that the full year membership provides the best value for money.  The prices currently showing below are our part year fees for 2018/19 members joining/re-joining from 1st September 2018.
