"A good l'envoy, ending in the goose: would you
desire more?"

Love's Labour's Lost
Act 3, Scene 1


We are soliciting comments on the newspage, the website, the club, the season, for our last newspage. Please send 'em along.

The leaves are fluttering down, the players are drifting away, daylight is diminishing: the season is ending. The last day of play is Tuesday, Nov. 11. The weather forecast is propitious. Come play these last few days. Come play.

While we're not playing much tennis, we still have much action here at the club:

A well-digger dug deep to find water for a well, a well to fill the pond that becomes the rink. Alas, the stratification below the earth was found to be unsuitable and it seems that we won't have a well here.

The club is hosting many rentals and has looked splendid indeed.


The next and final Big Event is the Closing Party on November 9. We'll have good things to drink and eat and a rockin' good time. The party will be 5:30 to 7:30.



The club book should be in your hands by now. Much of the information in the book is updated and available on the website.

Some useful links:

Here's a link to the espn site, with pro ranking.

And a club member (let's call him Sol) suggested a link to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, R.I. The site is rich.

We still have the tournament draws (from 2001 to 2004) available on-line (including all of the results), thanks to the Java Kid. We are re-locating the links, however.



"On the court, tennis players exchange not only ground strokes but lots of information. It's a richly interactive sport, both verbally and non-verbally. If players communicate clearly, simply, and consistently, the game will proceed more quickly, and with less fuss and misunderstanding. Here are a few guidelines that can make the game more fun, friendly, and fair for all...."

We've had some requests to run Craig Lambert's piece, sampled above, on Tennis Communication. (We'd better leave this link up on the newspage permanently.)



Take a look

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 said clicker can read the news pages for the whole year (2006). The less-than link (<) next to the honeycomb icon will take clickers to the previous issue of this year's newspage.
