The Boston Globe printed a death notice on Sunday, July 11: David Haskell



The construction on the new entrance has begun.

Ed Ducharme exits the way he entered.

Want some details?

The bobcat(s) came to grade the hill where the new stairway and entrance will be. They also dug 5 foot deep footings for the cement here and there. (Constructicons at the club have to be mindful of the effect of deep water and ice during the skating season.) The cat couldn't climb down the steep hill so we lowered a curtain on the corner of court 3 and put some plywood over the court so that the bobcat could climb up and down the entranceway over there in the corner behind court 3.

Ed Ducharme, Constructicon

If we can get a break on the weather, the construction should go fast. We think that the new entranceway will be wonderful.



The next round robin will be held on Thursday, July 22. The meal will be catered. Tennis starts at 6:00.



Rick Rose's fabled doubles clinics are up and running. They are usually well attended and big fun. They take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Check them out.



Summer membership has started. Welcome to our new summer members. We encourage you to come to round robins and to Sundays' pick-up doubles. And to play and play.

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.


As noted,the CTC book for 2004 is available. Much of the information in the book may now 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 Activites Page (round robins, tournaments, etc) is also up to date. The Rules page is also up to date and we have been urged to urge our readers to "review the rules and refresh their memories on some of the finer points."

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