Interested in playing against other clubs in local Leagues ...

ALTC have a variety of teams (13 in total) in the Sarum League, Basingstoke & District League and H&IOW leagues. These include mens, ladies and mixed teams. We also have junior teams that play in the Aegon Junior League and the Basingstoke & District League. Matches take place at the weekends and weekday evenings. The teams cater for all levels of players.

Please contact info@altc.net, Trevor Blake or Martyn Isherwood if you are interested in participating and representing the club.

Please note, according to the League rules, only club members are permitted to play for the teams.

Club landscaping is looking good ...

The patio area between the clubhouse and outside courts is nearly complete. The area looks fantastic and will become an additional social area for members and visitors to use whilst at the Club. It will be great for a beer and a bbq in the summer…

Paths to the courts and further car park work will be completed over the coming weeks. Plus post and rail fencing will be erected to give our new facility real definition.

The majority of these works have been funded by Veolia Environment Trust, which was gained due to a successful grant application submitted by the Club earlier in the year.

Please also view the Gallery for the more photos of the Club … more to follow soon…

The Committee wishes to thank its members for their co-operation during this phase of the construction.

Working with Tesco 'Bags of Help' to raise funds for the outdoor floodlights

After being shortlisted for the Tesco BagsofHelp campaign, the Club is delighted to announce it has been awarded £8,000 to go towards floodlights for the outdoor courts.

The Club wishes to thank everyone who supported the campaign by voting in Tesco stores during the 2 week voting period.

The next step regarding outdoor floodlighting involves technical information being supplied to the local Planning Authority for their approval - this takes a minimum of 8 weeks and finalising costs with our preferred supplier. Inevitably, this takes time, therefore it is very unlikely that outdoor floodlights will be available for this Winter's season.

The Club will give a further update over the coming months.

Thank you for supporting the Club.


For further information on the Tesco Bags of Help initative, please view www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

 

 

Hat-trick of wins for Will

Will Moon from Andover Lawn Tennis Club, has struck for the third consecutive time by recently winning the Salisbury Grade 4 U14 Open tennis tournament. This followed tournament wins at the Oxtalls (Gloucester) U14 Open and Portsmouth U14 Open. 

Fourteen year old Will is amongst a number of promising young players who play at the club, two former juniors have progressed tennis scholarships in the USA.

Andover Lawn Tennis Club is now enjoying their fantastic new Indoor Tennis Centre at Balksbury Hill on the outskirts of Andover. The club is currently operating two indoor and three outdoor courts and the construction of the clubhouse is underway.

Community engagement and growth of tennis is at the heart of the clubs ethos and the club warmly welcomes players of all ages and abilities to join in one of the many sessions ran by the clubs coaching team.  Please contact info@altc.net for further information – you may be the next Wimbledon champion!

Construction works

Construction work is due to be conducted in the car park from 31st August for about a week. This will involve trenching for the Club’s electrical supply to be connected. Please note there may be limited access to the Pavilion and part of the car park.  On no account should any members or visitors cross any barriers erected as part of this work. Thank you.

Furthermore, with respect to construction, the clubhouse structure has been erected and work will continue over the next few weeks to complete the clubhouse structure. Further work will then be required by the Club, to complete the internal fit-out.

The Committee apologies for any inconvenience caused whilst construction is carried out.

Construction re-starts

We are pleased to announce that we have finalised a further contract with Dove Construction to build the clubhouse structure with viewing windows to the indoor courts. KJM Windows has kindly sponsored ALTC in the form of providing the windows and doors for the clubhouse. This work will include a sewage treatment system and drainage plus landscaping of the site but does not include the internal fit-out of the clubhouse.

We are also pleased to announce that ALTC have been successfully awarded a grant of £14.2K from Veolia Envrionmental Services. This will be used to complete the landscaping and join the facility to the cyclepath/footpath to and from Andover.
