We opened last Saturday and the weather, ah, the weather. But the courts were lightly subscribed even on the most balmy, benevolent days. We had cold weather this weekend and the courts were pretty much deserted.
The club is planning many events for our tennis pleasure. Watch your email for a schedule. (We will also post the info on the newspage sometime soon.)

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'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
Yearbook link will take you to the last newspage from 2007 (the animation, the Billy tribute, etc. From there you can see the whole of the Persistent 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 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. (Skywriter is for Initiates.)
