Dear Club Members,

We have had a pretty successful run through the Summer Leagues this year. There has been the usual availability and weather issues, but I think most teams have managed really well. Thanks to the Captains and all the players who have supported their Teams and the Club.

As the Summer Leagues wind up, we will be starting the Summer Mixed Leagues in July. These will run through to September. We have to negotiate holidays, but we seem to have a good supply of players, so I am hoping that we will get three teams out this year. I have three Captains, so just need to know how many people are interested. I think most of the ladies are available for Mixed League - so if you haven’t done so already, particularly the men, please let me know if you would like to play, and it would also be helpful if you could just let me know any unavailability - just a quick line.

Please let me know by Tuesday 25 June, as I need to submit team details by Thursday 27 June 2019, to captain@albanyltc.co.uk

If you are not interested or not available this Summer, please do also let me know, so we can plan accordingly.

Many thanks.

SAD NEWS

It is with sadness that I share the news that Sue Feely passed away earlier this week after a short illness. There will be many that know Sue – Laura’s mum and Martin’s wife, and our heartfelt sympathies go out to all of Sue’s family and friends at this incredibly sad time. A truly lovely lady who will be sorely missed.

A card has been sent on behalf of Club members and a donation will be made to IOM Hospice.

CONGRATULATIONS!

The club sends all our best wishes to our Coach, Ian Watson, on becoming a Grandad for the first time! Seth David became UK tennis' next great hope on 24th March 2019!

Recycling Initiative

Jan Gaskill would like to thank members for their help
WELL DONE MEMBERS! - We have just filled the plastic bottle bin for the first time.  Keep up the good work and remember bottles ONLY please, tennis ball tubes are not acceptable (it's a different type of plastic, so they tell me).

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!

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.

  


The club's Annual General Meeting was held at the club on Wednesday 28 November at 6.30pm.  The meeting presented the 2017/8 statutory accounts, which were adopted, and the membership and indoor court fees for 2019/20 were agreed.  David Long was voted in as the club's new Chairman, and we wish him well.  David will take up the info@albanyltc.co.uk e-mail address.  

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.
