Apologies: The CTC website has been off and on lately. There have been some....technical problems. (Skyhost 6 has had to be re-configured.)

A burglary alert has been posted around the neighborhood. The cheek of some burglars.

No matter how balmy the weather, players stop playing here at the CTC round about October 1. Players find the light....unnerving. Or the wind. Or the skittering leaves. Some players have what we consider legitimate excuses: toe surgery, for instance. (Get well soon, oh Molly, and come back and play. Leave off squash.) The opening of the B & T we do not consider a legitimate excuse.

 

Darkness eats the back courts pretty thoroughly by about 7:00 p.m. nowadays. The lights on court 3 extend play a bit beyond, but just a bit.


Tournaments

Here's the saga of last year's tournaments:

 


 

Summer membership has again been extended on a pay-as-you-play basis. Summer members cannot reserve courts at prime time, but may reserve at other times and should fill out a chit for themselves as guests.

Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are now running on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The clinics run from 10:00 to 11:30 and cost $14.00. And they are very popular. Check them out.

 

Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.


Take a look


at what was going on at the club on this date last year.


Website Update: Events, Members, and Reservation Requests are not active parts of the site nowadays. Timelines is not for civilians.

The Governors and committees page, the Activities page (round robins, tournaments, etc), and the Rules page have all been updated. We thank the folks who have kindly done some on-line proofreading. And we solicit any additional proofreading. Or comments. Or essays, rhapsodies, haiku, bulletins, rants, objections. Or praise. Especially items that we might actually put up on the page. Anonymity is assured.

 

 

The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2001. From there you can see the whole of the Persistent Archive of last year's news.


Website Note: The time and temperature icon below is a link to a Boston weather site.

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 newspage.

The letters below will waft the clicker to a translation program, so that you can see these deathless words translated to wonderfully unidiomatic French, Italian, etc. (It's a toy. Some of us love toys, still, and some of us love to click.)
