Imagine a frozen waste, lifeless, lightless, windswept, with tennis nets. That's what we have here, gentle readers. Oh woe.
Some of our readers took exception to our sad claim that there are more visitors to the newspage than to the courts lately. Well, around now, there are more readers per day than players per week. Even the phone is quiet and cobwebby.
We do get a few calls:
-Hi, can you tell me when the Skate Exchange takes place?
. -Hi, I'm interested in figure skating lessons? for my daughter?
-Hello, did you say 'tennis?' I wanted to have my skates sharpened.
-Hello, may I speak to the person in charge of your long-distance calling service?
Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are "iffy," or lately, "way iffy" due to the cold weather. (Rick is game, but attendance has dropped off.) Please call the clubhouse if you are still interested.
When the clinics run, they run on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 to 11:30 and cost $14.00.

Website Update: 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.)
