Tennis Club News

(Late Edition)




We are going to try to open some courts on Friday, May 16. The clay is soft, but the crew is brushing and rolling and brushing and rolling (and cursing and fuming and moping and lamenting). And we're getting a few rays here and there. Barring another drop of dare-we-say-it rain, we hope to get a big crew in on Thursday and finish nailing in the tapes. We'll put up some nets ('some' because the clay still has the consistencey of pudding on, say, the service boxes on court 3), and play some tennis.
Stay tuned.


We haven't been able to play at the club, but we can visit virtually. Here's some pictures of last week's work:

The last of the curtains went up on Friday.

The lines are in on Court 4, partially on Court 3

Rick Rose's brother, Irons, worked with the crew.



The CTC book is hot off the presses and copies should be in the mail soon.

The information in the book may also be found here on the website. The information is current. The 'Activities' page (round robins, tournaments, etc) has been updated, i.e., the schedule of events for 2003 can be found on the website. Also, the waiting list for membership, as well as a list of new members has been updated. That information can be found through the 'FAQ' page. The 'Governors and Committees' page, and the 'Rules' page have also been updated.

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

We thank our on-line proofreaders and contributors to the effort to update the website, most especially Lucy Fowler whose help is, as always, much appreciated.



Take a look

at what was happening at the club at this time last year. (We were open.)





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



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



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.)
