Tuesday, June 27

Fourth of July Party: The club's fabled party/round robin/barbecue previously scheduled for July 3 has been patriotically re-scheduled for July 4, a Tuesday. Please note on the club bulletin board what food you might bring, and please do come. We follow a round robin format; the food is a feast; and the tennis play sparkles.


Mixed Doubles: The finals of the mixed doubles tournament were held last Sunday. Molly Downer and Alex Moot played against Michelle Schaffer and David Hemenway.

Men's Singles: Alexi Joannidis won the Men's Singles title. Here's a link to the Men's Singles draw.

Note on links: A club member who wishes to remain anonymous put in a lot of work to put the draw in Java, a computer scripting language. There are literally hundreds of lines of code behind what you see as the draw. Thank you, Anonymous.

Round Robin: This week's round robin is scheduled for Wednesday, June 28. There is still space on the sign-up sheet. Tennis starts at 6:00.

Round Robin Note: "There will be a new format for all round robins, to enable everyone to play with different people. It will no longer be a "competition." Players will play 8 games with one partner and then mix it up and play 8 games with someone else, etc. Staff will supervise this. For those who want to choose their own partners, they can do this after supper. This new format will give members a chance to meet new potential partners, and will give summer members an opportunity to get to know a lot of new people on the courts and off."
