The courts were flooded today at about noon.




Andy and his partner had to run into the clubhouse through the downpour.

"But let the recourds show

that on July 18, we opened courts 1, 3, and 4 at 5:00."
-Tom

People often ask what's the problem with court 5? Well, we wonder how the other courts can possibly open so fast.

The schedule looks like we're about to have a mighty busy week. Correspondents, please fill us in on what's been going on here at the CTC. (We have been far, far away. Way far.)

 


 

We need racquets for the Cambridge Recreation Department's Youth Program. The kids will be using our courts at noontimes during the week. If you have a racquet that you could donate, the donation would be much appreciated.

 


 

Though we've been closed a bit lately, whenever we're open, Rick Rose has been mighty busy. His doubles strategy clinics (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 to 11:30) have been howling successes. The kids clinics on Sunday afternoons have also been busy.

 

The next round robin will take place on Wednesday, July 20. Tennis starts at 6:00 p.m. The meal will be catered.

 


 

The Men's Doubles Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, July 24. Let's not cancel this one.

 


 

The club book, right now, should be right by your hand. The website also has up-to-date info. The Rules section, the Governors and Committees and Activities (tournaments, round robins, etc) sections are current for 2005. Also, the Waiting List (which is not featured in the book) is current and ordered on the website. (The Waiting List and the list of New Members can be accessed through the FAQ page.) We thank the committee heads for making the information available in such a timely fashion and we urge all public spirited readers to proof-read.

'Members', and' Reservation Requests' are not active parts of the site nowadays. 'Timelines' is for adepts.

 


 

Take a look


at what was happening at this time last year.

 


 

We'll keep the tournament draws available on-line (including all of the results), thanks to the Java Kid:

 


 

And the previous tournaments:

And here's the saga of 2002's tournaments (so's we can compare and contrast):

 

And the saga of the year before (we're mighty fancy here, and mighty grateful to the Java Kid for doing all this work):

Phew.

 


 

Some useful links:

Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.

And a club member (let's call him Sol) suggests a link to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The site is rich.

 

 

The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2004. From there you can see the whole of the Persistant Archive of last year's news.
