Unfortunately due to the low number of entrants, we have cancelled the Club Championships this year. Apologies to those that registered and would have been keen to play.
We are pleased to welcome back our existing members and also many new members. In these challenging times, we hope that you have been made to feel welcome and that the court booking system has meant that you feel safe to play. Please do let a Committee member know if there is anything that we could be doing to improve your experience at the Club. Without our social tennis, it has been hard to include new members but we hope that our efforts have helped. Fortunately, club nights have now been reintroduced albeit in a managed format to maintain social distancing.
Various group coaching activities are being put together and will commence week of 20th July. These will be advertised very soon - prebooking will be required to manage numbers which will be limited.
We hope to see you all back on court very soon.
Based on the latest Government advice to manage the coronavirus spread, it is with considerable regret that we will be closing the Club from 6pm today (23rd March) for the foreseeable future.
There will be no access to the clubhouse or the outdoor courts. The coaching programme and all leagues and tournaments will also finish until further notice.
We appreciate that this will be disappointing to you, as it is for us. But in the midst of this pandemic we have to think about the wellbeing of all members of our community.
We don’t expect you to pay for membership whilst the Club is closed. For members who have not yet renewed for the coming year we would suggest that they defer doing this at present. For those members who have recently renewed we are looking at how best to manage the GoCardless direct debits (monthly payments) - we will update you on this. Finally where members have already paid in full for 2020/21 we will look to extend membership for the period of time that the club is closed.
We will continue to update you of any changes. In the meantime if you have any questions please direct them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay safe, stay fit and keep well. We look forward to welcoming you back to Glan Aber Tennis Club as soon as possible.

Delighted that Ashley Rogers was presented with the Tennis for Life Award for his contribution to Glan Aber over many years. Not only was Ash the Club Treasurer for 20 years, he was involved with the relocation of the club to its site in Westminster Park . Whilst no longer on the Committee, Ash is now a Trustee of the Club and we value his wealth of background knowledge.
The Club was well represented at the Awards Evening and we were pleased to see Thomas Herbert receive his winner's trophy as part of the 10&u County Team who reached the finals this year.
In place of our usual Handicap Tournament, Aidan is running Fast 4s Tennis. Please support this new initiative which should be a fun tournament and suitable for all players. There is a sign up sheet in the Clubhouse for adults, as well as 16&u boys & girls, green, orange and red categories. Tournament commences 1st December 2019 with finals in April (date to be confirmed). Aidan will sort partners if needed! Please see the attached notice for details.
Fantastic day of tennis - many thanks to all the players for making the Club Championship tournament a success and congratulations to all our winners. Thanks especially to Aidan for running the event, all our helpers and of course our sponsors, Geotechnics. Details of winners/ runners up are listed under Club Championships. Here's a few photos from the day......
Aidan and Tomas have completed their school coaching sessions. The children of Lache and St. Clare's Primaries have enjoyed the sessions and we look forward to seeing some of them at the Club in the future. Hopefully we'll be back again next year. Aurora and Amelia were presented with scholarships from Glan Aber which entitles them to some coaching sessions plus membership of the Club until March 2020.
Great afternoon of fun and games led by our amazing coaching team - so nice to see the sunshine and no rain today! Lots of adults and children joining in and pleased that so many are keen to join our Club. Looking forward to seeing you on court soon. Thanks to all the volunteers who make it possible.
Congratulations to our winners and runners up. Many thanks to Steve Telford who once again organised and presided over the Tournament on behalf of the Club.
