Tennis Club News

Some week we had:

3-31-04 We pumped out almost all of the Skating Club's water.

But that same day the Big Rain started.

We took in a lot of water.

Really a lot of water.

But we pumped and pumped.

And now we have mud.

Lots of mud.

We've had to pump the water out twice now, and the courts are covered with mud and we have considerable damage from frost heaves. The court rehab crew hasn't been able to set foot on the courts yet. We'll be opening a bit late this year.



Membership information: Waiting list information can be found in the FAQ section of the website. After folks have been accepted, we will update. Right now there are 29 spaces open, so you can count down on the waiting list to see who will be, or has been, invited to join. Remember to count two spaces for a family.

at what was happening at this time last year. (The falling snowflakes. This page took hours to make.)

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 information in the CTC book may also be found here on the website. The information is current. The waiting list for membership, as well as a list of new members is up to date. That information can be found through the 'FAQ' page. The 'Governors and Committees' page, and the 'Rules' page are also up to date.

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


The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2003. 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.
