ALBANY TENNIS NEWS BY Pat Sharp

Congratulations to our Todmorden Shield team who successfully defended their 2018 title.
The team was Jackie Russell, Charlotte Clarke, Aailish Kelly, Ava Austerbury, Sean Drewry, Rob Comber, David Bufton and Tim Davies. Albany will host the event next year – date yet to be decided.

The raffle to be drawn on President’s Day is the first of many fundraising events we are planning, to raise funds for a proposed small conservatory facing courts 2 and 3 and LED lighting for the indoor court. Just put £2 in one of the envelopes provided, write your name on it and place it in the box. Prizes include a £20 Shoprite voucher, Prosecco, tin of Celebration chocolates, Albany shirts – Junior and Senior sizes, tennis balls and a mystery prize. At the request of club president, Bryan Sharp, the total amount raised from the tournament and the raffle will be shared between the Albany Development fund and the Friends of Children of Chernobyl.

Over many years – probably 55yrs – members have raised funds for various projects e.g . buying the land, 3 tarmac courts, floodlights, up-grading the court surfaces, the indoor court and the clubhouse. Members have supported all types of events such as sponsored tennis, sponsored walks, a ladies football match, Tombolas, raffles, cheese and pickle party, Christmas Fayres and endless jumble sales with dear old Nora Dobson in the Red Cross Hall. etc. All good fun and worthwhile. Maybe our juniors, with their parents would run an event. Twenty five years ago our juniors had raised £8,000 towards the indoor court.
The sub-committee are looking for ideas and members to help or organise. We are considering a Christmas fayre where members could hire a table and sell items for their favourite charity or the club. We will almost certainly be holding a Christmas tombola for which donations of prizes would be gratefully received. If you can help please contact me or Jan Gaskill.

Forthcoming events are - Friday 27th September the Friday Morning Ladies Group are holding the Big Stir in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support. If you have some spare time, please go and support them. There will be lots of lovely cakes on sale.

Friday 11th October – Friday Morning Ladies Harvest Lunch after the usual Friday morning club session which will be funded by the Friday Ladies group. This group is a very successful part of Albany’s activities and they welcome new members especially new residents.

ISLAND JUNIOR TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS - AUGUST / SEPTEMBER 2019

The 2019 Island Junior Tennis Championships took place at the end of August / beginning of September. All the matches took place at the customary home for the Junior Championships, Kensington Road, hosted by Douglas Lawn Tennis Club.

In the 8 and Under Red Ball, with entries slightly lower than usual possibly because of the holiday period, the winner was Daniel Spiysyn and runner up Oscar Clarke. In the 10 and Under Green Ball there were 3 boys and 4 girls playing in a mixed completion. In the semi finals Noah Chambers was too strong for Amieko Kirkham, the only girls in the semi finals, winning 4-0 while Sonny Shipley-Martin defeated George Salter 4-2. The final went to a tie break at 4 games all with Noah running out the winner by 7/3 after a very competitive match.

In the 12 and Under competition the Girls was won by Ava Austerberry and the mixed by Greg Kelly while in the 14 and Under Girls, which was played as a round robin, all players playing each other, Charlotte Clarke won dropping only 1 game on the way to Catlin Henery who was runner up in the age group. In the boys competition also played as a round robin Jayden Go also just dropped 1 game which was against Greg Kelly who was runner up in this event.

The final age group was the 18 and Unders also played as round robin events Charlotte Clarke again won this event dropping only 1 game again, this time to Sarah Long, who finished runner up in this event. In the Boys, Jayden go also won again, dropping 3 games against Jack Christian who finished runner up in this event.

There were also 5 doubles event played. In the U18 Girls Charlotte Clarke and Aailish Kelly defeated Sarah Long and Ava Austerberry 6/0, 6/1 while in the U14 Girls Charlotte Clarke and Caitlin Henery defeated Aailish Kelly and Ava Austerberry 4/1, 4/2 . In the U18 Boys Jack Christian and David Taylor defeated Jayden Go and Greg Kelly 0/6, 6/3 [11-9] in the Champions Tie Break while in the U14 Orry Farnworth and Greg Kelly defeated Jayden Go and David Taylor 4/2, 4/2.

The U14 Mixed doubles event was drawn just before being played with the girls picking their partners out of the hat before the draw. In match one Aailish Kelly and Orry Farnworth defeated Caitlin Henery and David Taylor 5/3, 4/0 after a tight first set. In the other match Ava Austerberry and Jayden Go defeated Charlotte Clarke and Greg Kelly 4/2, 3/5 [10-7] in a Champions Tie Break decider. This set up an exciting final between the two winning pairs which also went to a Champions Tie Break after the first two sets were shared 4/2, 2/4. In the Tie Break Ava and Jayden made a flying start winning the first 8 points before Aailish and Orry got on the scoreboard. Ava and Jayden winning [10-3].

The prizes were presented by Ron Sibthorpe, Chairman of Douglas Lawn Tennis Club who thanked the Tournament Organiser and Referee Paul Jarvis for running the event on behalf of the Isle of Man Lawn tennis Association over the last week.

Also presented at the event were the two Annual Tennis Awards for Juniors. The award for the best Under 18 player on the Island went to Charlotte Clarke who also won this award last year. The Performance Award for the player who has improved the most during the last 12 months and performed well both on and off the Island went to Jayden Go. Jayden won this award as and Under 8 in 2013, so it was the second time for him being recognised with this award. Well done to both players.

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!
