Court Conditions: The courts are all closed this Sunday morning. Please call the clubhouse for an update.
June is BIG here at the CTC. June is usually the busiest month of the year. People play a lot. Weekends are booked from, say, 8:00 to closing, every court, every hour. Weekdays - it's tough to get a court at prime time. Folks call promptly at 8:00 a.m. and deploy trick phone features, like continuous automatic re-dial.
The next Round Robin will take place on June 5. Tennis starts at 6:00. The meal will be catered. (The event is fully subscribed, but there is a waiting list.)
The Tournament sign-up has been extended. Please sign up. (Did somebody say 'tournament?') What's happening, we think, is that folks are lining up partners for doubles, aligning themselves, sizing up the opposition. Don't take too long sizing and aligning, though: the Tennis Committee will, someday, take down the sign-up sheets.
Old pal (and former staff member), Joe Ulam, will appear at the Harvard Coop on Tuesday, June 4, to discuss his father's last book, Understanding the Cold War: A Historian's Personal Reflections. Joe will also talk about the Leopolis Press which was founded by his father, Adam Ulam. Adam and Joe were both long-time members of the club.
We're glad you're coming to town, Joe. We'll see you at the Coop.
The CTC Women's Team played last Thursday against the Dover Town Team. CTC won 3 out of the 4 matches. CTC women have won 12 out of 20 matches this year, and a team member reports that this year's team has great spirit, great camaraderie. The team plays its last home match on June 6, at 9:00.
Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics has started, and will continue for a while on Mondays and Wednesdays, pending the ending of the women's team season, and pending input from attendees and potential attendees.
He's accepting feedback.
The clinics run from 10:00 to 11:30 and cost $14.00. And they are very popular. Check them out.
