Grand opening: tomorrow, Thursday, May 5, noontime, if we have no rain between now and then and the (exhausted) crew gets in there early and puts up some nets and seals up some curtains and snips the ends off the lines and....Yes, indeedy, we'll open courts 3 and 4 and maybe 1 tomorrow.The other courts will follow as soon as the new clay firms up. We won't accept any reservations tomorrow over the phone because we can't spare a staff person to sit by the phone, so first come, first serve (first serve? is that some kind of...?) But you could stop in and put your name on the schedule. We'll stay open 'til, say, 7:00 p.m. and then go for a full day on Friday. We'll begin taking reservations on the regular schedule beginning Friday at exactly 8:00 a.m.
Welcome to the 2005 season.
We still have some loose ends:
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.

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.
The Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2004. 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 (2004). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take you to the last issue of the newspage.
