Telephone calls: The courts are open, but mostly unused. What's still getting a workout is the telephone. It rings and rings:
-Hello, Cambridge Tennis Club, how may we help you?
-Tennis Club? I thought that this was the Skating Club.
-Do you sharpen skates?
-Do you have free skating periods?
-Hi, we'd like to rent your space for a keg party. We're from Harvard.
-Hi, do you have any old, used balls? I have a dog.
Correspondents' alert: Want to be a reporter? All you have to do is report.
We need a report, or many mini-reports, on the Closing Party. If any of our readers care to report, you can be, as usual, Anonymous.

Thanks to folks who have kindly called or e'd results.
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. (Must be some debate.) So, if you click on Reservation Requests, you can see the system, but it is not active.

Website Note II: The honey-comb icon is also a link. It takes the clicker to an archive of all the past news pages so that you can read the news pages for the whole year (2001). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to the last issue of the news.
