Tennis Club News

Tuesday, May 3, 2005 (Late Edition)


Open tomorrow? Sorry, no way. The rain last night mushified the courts. Today the courts were too soft to be worked on, other than a good, slow, deliberate rolling. We hope to open on Thursday. (You know the current forecast, 'passing showers Wednesday afternoon?' We really, really don't want any. We're dyin' to open.

(Remember that old blues song, Rollin' n' tumblin?' Well, we've been

rollin' and a brushin'
and cryin' all night looonnng.


We'll leave the pictures of the week's work up for a while.

On Monday, the lines on court 3 were nailed in.

And most of the lines on court 1.

The lines are long, very long, and there are lots of nails, lots.

Some of the workers are heroic.



A Note on the club book: Right now, the club book is in the process of going to the printer. But we have up-to-date info here on the website. The Rules section, the Governors and Committees and Activities sections are current for 2005. Also, the Waiting List is current and in order. (It can be accessed through the FAQ page.) We thank the committee heads for making the information available in such a timely fashion and we urge all public spirited readers to proof-read.

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



Take a look

at what was happening at this time last year.



We'll keep the tournament draws available on-line (including all of the results), thanks to the Java Kid:



And the previous tournaments:




And here's the saga of 2002'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):




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.
