A message from Pauline Foley
Dear WTA members,
Taking part in the Friday Night Round Robbins has been a highlight of my summer.
When President Barry Fishman asked if I would help in organizing the weekly event, I was a little hesitant, thinking I might not be up to the task.
But with the his help, and with the assistance of Glen Doyle, Aniko Laszlo, Ferenc Vadja, and Lorraine Bates, the task became easier and more enjoyable as the summer continued; and we never had to cancel because of rain.
Plus, the many players who participated became such good friends, some of whom I hadn't met until this summer.
I am very grateful to these helpers and to the Winchester Tennis Association for its recognition of my participation with a memorable thank you card and very generous gift.
I look forward to supporting the WTA again.
TENNIS SHOES ONLY ON THE COURTS - NO RUNNING SHOES
NO CROSS TRAINERS - THANK YOU
When someone plays for one hour on the clay courts in cross trainers
or running shoes it takes 80 pounds of Har-Tru topping and 90 minutes
of skilled labor to repair the court. Every day someone comes to the courts
ready to play in shoes that are not suitable for these courts.
If you see someone playing in running shoes or cross trainers please bring
it to the attention of the Supervisor or gate person. If no one is at the gate
please bring it to the player's attention. It is in everyone's interest that the courts be protected and respected. Cross trainers and running shoes tear up and damage our precious courts. Thank you.
