Tennis Club News

Friday, July 11, 2003



The members have spoken: rather frolick in the the malarial heat than abstain. The place is packed.

The other day...what was it, Thursday? the air was perfect: fragrant, bright, clean. The day was made for tennis. Butterflies landed on noses, Bambi was spotted over in Longfellow Park, the birds called out: nice shot! And the club was touched with a visit by some of our favorite people.





The tournament players have spoken: rather wait than play. see how things shake out.

We have the tournament draws up and running, thanks to our Anonymous Friend, the Java Kid. (We urge tournament players, interested members, pals, and complicit bystanders to email tournament results to Java so that she can keep the draw up-to-date. So that the fans can follow the tournament progress on-line, stay on-line, never look up. And you might tell her thanks, good work, Java.)

The draws for the tournaments are also posted on the Special Tournament Bulletin Board inside the clubhouse.

The second round of the tournaments should be played by July 20, and the third by July 31.

Okay, here we go:




And here's the saga of last year's tournaments (so's we can compare and contrast):


And the saga of the year before (we're mighty fancy here, and mighty grateful to the Java Kid for doing all this work):




Club Presidant, Dick Harter wrote a Spring letter to members. There's lots of news in it. Also, he quotes James Russell Lowell. We love the quoting.


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, and sulphourous steam arising from the...)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 a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.

And a club member (let's call him Sol) suggests a link to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The site is rich.


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.

Joe DeBassio, Webmaster, is on vacation for a little bit. (Should there be a dire emergency with the site, the hackers got us, the hackers, you might get in touch with the website's father.)

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.)
