Yup, we're open. All five happy courts. We're having lots of play on a day that may be marked as the nicest day of the year. Come play. (Photos to follow.)
The new club book is brewing. The website has the new, improved, much-changed Rules and we hope to update the rest of the book's info before there is a book. The book will be along shortly.
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.

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.)
