    Story

    In an effort to keep fit in my "maturing years" so I can continue to enjoy life and play tennis I decided to run a half marathon on October 06th 2019 with the parallel objective of raising money for the new court and floodlighting project at my club, Almscliffe Tennis and Bowling Club (ATBC), Huby.

    I will be running the St Aidan's Trail Half Marathon south east of Leeds taking in St Aidan's and Fairburn Ings RSPB reserves, via the RIver Aire - it is supposed to be "undulating" but hopefully not too much! (see (https://racebest.com/races/y83vv)

    I would be very grateful if you would support me, particularly as I believe that this project will upgrade our facilities to make them fit for the needs of our community in the 21st century ensuring the continuity of ATBC as a focal point for our great village and a contributor to village life.

    We will be building a new synthetic grass tennis court, (which will also be a multi-sports area for primary age children similar to the above picture), resurfacing the two existing courts and installing LED floodlights.

    Once completed, the automated access facility on the multi-use games area will allow:

    • the Head Teacher of the village primary school access to

    o additional space to teach and play sport

    o an alternative venue for after school sports

    • families to benefit from the use of the venue for

    o the provision of junior sports skills such as Brazilian football

    o sports holiday camps for aged 11 and under

    o private hire for children’s parties

    o local grass roots tennis and other junior sports on a pay as you go basis

    Floodlights and all-weather surface will enable:

    • All year-round rather than seasonal evening play, particularly for youngsters and working adults

    • Quality year-round rather than seasonal coaching programmes for adults and children

    • Winter bowling practice

    Please support me and help us improve our facilities, preserving them for future generations!

      A really BIG THANK YOU for all your support, you have been amazing. Well I did it - 2 hours 14 minutes, 166th out of 263 and you all helped me in the last 3 miles with a great incentive to finish - the below finish line was very welcome! Not sure I will be doing a half marathon anytime soon! Thank you all again. Tim
