Tennis Club News

Sunday, July 6, 2005



Are we all riding down the road, windows open, singing in unison: V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N, in the summer sun....? No? Well some of us are. Billy is a-way for a bit, as is the newsroom staff. Tom and the New Guys are keeping the ship afloat and on course. Help them.


Ronnie blew into town a while ago and left us some pictures that we thought to share:

Ronnie and Marvin won the Member/Guest Tournament at Marvin's club, the Boca Pointe Country Club. Now how could you lose with Marvin as your partner?

...and Ronnie and Roddick who are in a joint tennis/business venture.



The pattern here of late is busy during the week and slow on the weekends. Very slow. A somewhat unusual pattern for us.




We need racquets for the Cambridge Recreation Department's Youth Program. The kids will be using our courts at noontimes during the week. If you have a racquet that you could donate, the donation would be much appreciated.



Though we've been closed a bit lately, whenever we're open, Rick Rose has been mighty busy. His doubles strategy clinics (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 to 11:30) have been howling successes. The kids clinics on Sunday afternoons have also been busy.


The next round robin will take place on Wednesday, July 20. Tennis starts at 6:00 p.m. The meal will be catered.



The Men's Doubles Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, July 24. Let's not cancel this one.



The club book, right now, should be right by your hand. 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. (Dave Haskell)



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):




Some useful links:

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.
