The Question of the Day: Why Does The Tennis Club Close on Nov. 15? (It's not like people are going to skate on Nov. 16, are they?)
The lease is up; the time is up; the jig is up. Also, it takes the staff a bit of time to take down the Tennis Club. Poles, curtains, nets, tapes, all of that. There are 10,000,000 ties and snap-hooks and s-hooks and hose clamps and various other doohickeys that have to be undone and hauled and packed. The bloomin' leaves have to be raked and removed. And then there are railings and deckings and so on to be put in place for the Skaters. For the leetle rascals on skates. All of the above takes time, and it's all outdoor activity. And the year is progressing, getting colder.
And no one is playing tennis at the club, are they? Are you? (Sob.)
Correspondents' alert: Want to be a reporter? All you have to do is report.
We'll leave the tournament draw up for the rest of the year.
Reservations Note: While the CTC website has the capacity to handle on-line reservations, the Tennis Club Board has reservations about using the reservation system. So, if you click on Reservation Requests, you can see the system, but it is not active.
