We are losing ground.


April 4, 2003

Billy readies a new pump for the fray.



Usually the target date for opening the courts is April 15. Sometimes we're a bit later. Last year we opened a couple of courts on April 21. Usually the process takes about 3 to 4 weeks once the staff can get on the courts. The staff hasn't been able to step foot on the courts yet this year. It's quite possible that the staff doesn't get on the courts until April 15, 2003.

-Is there any hope?
-The clay comes on Tuesday, April 8.
And we have a spiffing new half horse power pump that should help keep the courts from flooding.

-That's as good as it gets?
-Well, ya. Last week we had water flooding up over the curb on Willard St. and pouring down the banks and the stairs. And then snow.



Take a look

at what was happening at the club at this time last year.





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



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

Website Update:

The Governors and committees page, the Activities page (round robins, tournaments, etc), and the Rules page need to be updated. As the information becomes available, we'll post it.

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



The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2002. From there you can see the whole of the Persistant 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. (You can use this program to translate web-pages other than the newspage.)
