Arranged Pairs/Mixed Doubles Tournament: The finals of the tournament were held yesterday. David Haskel and Rosalie Hornblower defeated Kevin McDevitt and Yvonne McQuilken. David and Rosalie emerged from a tough field as the club champs of this new event. Congratulations.Here's a link to the draw. (The draw itself was done in Java by our mysterious, anonymous friend. Thanks again, Anon.) Some flowers in the club's garden.

Member/Guest Round Robin: The next member/guest round robin is right around the corner. It is scheduled for Saturday, August 5 from 12:00 to 3:00. Don't miss it.
Ratings: Did you miss being rated? Here's a link to our FAQ on how tennis ratings work, and another link explaining the different levels, for those of us who don't know what a 3.5 player is.
Court Conditions: Very good for courts 1,2,3, and 4, but, sadly, only good for court 5.
