Sunday, July 30
Courts: The courts are below street level and they've been taking some mighty wallops from the weather, but the pumps keep pumping and the drainage system keeps draining, and so, the players keep playing. We could stand a few rays though, couldn't we?
Security Alert: A member's purse was stolen at the club on Tuesday morning in spite of the fact that the club was quite busy. We advise caution in leaving valuables lying about. The purse was later found in a dumpster behind Copley Plaza and returned to the owner, minus the money. Be alert: the jungle encroacheth.
Member/Guest Round Robin: The next member/guest round robin is scheduled for Saturday, August 3 from 12:00 to 3:00. The sign-up sheet is on the porch bulletin board.
Round Robin: The round robins that have not been rained out have been fun. We'll try again on Thursday, August 4 with a pizza round robin. There's plenty of room on the sign-up sheet.
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. (Maybe you're routinely beating someone ranked 4.0.)
Court Conditions: Closed, probably for the day. We're pretty vulnerable because the ground is quite saturated. The pumps never stop.
