Fourth of July Party Alert: 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.
Round Robin: Next week's round robin, a pizza night, is scheduled for July 6. 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."

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.
Arranged Pairs/Mixed Doubles Tournament: This tournament is new to the club, a doubles tournament where the teams are arranged by the club pro. The sign-up sheet is on the porch bulletin board. The semi-finals are scheduled for July 22 and the finals for July 23.
Wimbledon: For those of us who want it all on line, here's a link to the official Wimbledon site which has scores and more.
Summer Membership: Summer membership has begun. Summer members should try to come to round robins, Sunday pick-up doubles, and parties like the one that the club hosts on the 4th of July. The club is quite sociable, especially at the tennis parties.
Court Conditions: Open!
