Jim Baldwin is featured in the new movie, "What's the Worst That Could Happen?" (Not only is he in the movie, but his bit is being shown in the previews on television. He's a star.)

As always, contributions to the news page are quite welcome. We are partial to humor, but we'll consider gripes, wails, rants, and effusions.

Reservations Note: While the CTC website has the capacity to handle on-line reservations, the efficacy of deploying the system is still being debated by the tennis club Board. So, if you click on Reservation Requests, you can see the system, but it is not active. Stay posted.

Take a look at what was going on at the club at this time last year.
