"And if it rains, a closed car at four."
     -The Wasteland

"The courts aren't seeing much action, but the phone is burning up."
     -CTC staff



The two principle theories about the rain are:

We heard from a subscriber to the latter theory. She urged us to urge you to believe, to hope, to sign up for the tournaments. There will be a season, she said. Show your optimism, sign up.
The sign-up sheets are posted on the porch bulletin board. If the courts are rained out, call in your entries. Call in your hope.
(Or clap, clap if you believe in....)



USA Tennis N.E. Hall of Fame, in Newport, will honor some "members of the local tennis community" on Saturday, June 7. Edward J. Serues, father of the CTC member Ed Serues, will be inducted. We've seen Ed and his father here at the CTC many times over the years and we were always dazzled by their play.

Bud Schultz will be also be inducted. Bud is known to many members here for his coaching at both Longwood and the Badminton and Tennis Club.



Speaking of pros:




'Hurricane' and James Blake, players with Cambridge connections


Club member, Charles Ansbacher will lead his Landmarks Ochestra in a series of free concerts again this year. Check out the website for info and a schedule.


Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are up and running. They have been scheduled, between drops and torrents and cataracts, for Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Check them out.



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.

And here's a link to the official French Open site.


The CTC book is hot off the presses and all members should have a copy by now.

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 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.


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.)
