Addie, Yvonne, Lita, Allen


The Arranged Pairs Mixed Doubles final was played on Friday. Yvonne McQuilken and Addison Closson played against Lita Newdick and Allen West. The players were quite...frisky. Lita and Allen won in two lively sets on a clear, bright day. Congrats to the champs, and congrats to all the finalists.



The Columbus Day party was lightly attended. The day was perfect for tennis and leaf peeping.

Michelle and David were there.



No baseball 7th game postmortems will be found here, but some members' reactions seem....entertaining:

-Wasn't there a big game last night? the Yankees and the Red Sox? Does anyone know who won?

-I will never watch a baseball game again. I will never go to Fenway. I will never....

-Baseball? Puh-lease.


The End of the Season Party will be held on Monday, November 3, from 5:00 to 7:00. The party will feature wine, beer, soft drinks and gourmet nibbles. Tournament winners will be announced and awards presented.



The End of the Season Tennis Ball Sale: Balls will be sold by the case, at the price of $60.40 ($2.40 a can). Right now, we don't know how many cases we will have left at the end of the season, but you can put your name down on the list posted on the porch bulletin board.


Rick Rose is going to teach tennis this winter at MIT. If you want to schedule a lesson with Rick at MIT, give him a call at the club or at his home.


Awright, awright, the Head of the Charles Regatta is upon us and upon our parking spaces. You can find out more at the official website.



We have the tournament draws up and up-to-date, thanks to our Anonymous Friend, the Java Kid. )

Please note that we post tournament results, but not scores.

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

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):




Rick Rose's Doubles Clinics are up and running. They have been scheduled 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 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.)
