Tournaments: Pheee-ew! Some finals, no? Entertaining? Intense? Dramatic? Instructive? Congrats to all finalists. Congrats, yipes, and thanks.
All of the tournament outcomes are updated below. The finals for Men's Singles and Mixed Doubles have not been played due to injuries. (Both of those matches could not be played any time soon, and so were won by default.)
We feel bad for the tournament directors.
Comments? (Preferably printable, anonymity assured?)
Darkness eats the back courts at about 7:00 p.m. nowadays. The lights on court 3 extend play a bit beyond, but just a bit.
Last year the tournaments were...how shall we say it?...hot? interesting? So, since our Friend-of-the-Club is willing to help (she does more than help: she does all the heavy lifting. Java indeed), we're going to list the draws and outcomes of last year's tournaments. Folks who follow the tournaments online might figure out who our Friend is and tell her thanks when you see her. We sure thank her.
|Summer membership has again been extended on a pay-as-you-play basis. Summer members cannot reserve courts at prime time, but may reserve at other times and should fill out a chit for themselves as guests.|
Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are now running on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The clinics run from 10:00 to 11:30 and cost $14.00. And they are very popular. Check them out.
Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.

Website Update: Events, Members, and Reservation Requests are not active parts of the site nowadays. Timelines is not for civilians.
The Governors and committees page, the Activities page (round robins, tournaments, etc), and the Rules page have all been updated. We thank the folks who have kindly done some on-line proofreading. And we solicit any additional proofreading. Or comments. Or essays, rhapsodies, haiku, bulletins, rants, objections. Or praise. Especially items that we might actually put up on the page. Anonymity is assured.
The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2001. From there you can see the whole of the Persistent Archive of last year's news.
Website Note: The time and temperature icon below is a link to a Boston weather site.
Joe DeBassio, Webmaster
Website Note II: The honey-comb icon is also a link. It takes the clicker to an archive of all the past news pages so that you can read the news pages for the whole year (2001). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to the last issue of the newspage.
The letters below will waft the clicker to a translation program, so that you can see these deathless words translated to wonderfully unidiomatic French, Italian, etc. (It's a toy. Some of us love toys, still, and some of us love to click.)
