Tennis Club News

Monday, June 6, 2005


The season, The Season, began last Saturday: the weather was beee-uuu-tee-ful. And the courts were packed. And everyone was happy. Even court 5 was happy.

June is traditionally the busiest month of the season. We are off to a very good start.


Betsy and Mary played.

...and Sue Mann (who, you might remember, hit the First Ball of The Season) was, maybe, the first player to use the new ball machine.

Let the wild rumpus BEGIN.


The next round robin will take place on Thursday, June 9. Tennis starts at 6:00 p.m. The meal will be catered.



The Women's Doubles Tournament will take place on Sunday, June 26. Sign up sheets are posted on the porch bulletin board.



The club book, right now, should be in your hands, or in your mailbox. The website also has up-to-date info. The Rules section, the Governors and Committees and Activities (tournaments, round robins, etc) sections are current for 2005. Also, the Waiting List (which is not featured in the book) is current and ordered on the website. (The Waiting List and the list of New Members 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.



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