Saturday June 25 2011
Washington Township Tennis Club
620 Pascack Rd
Township of Washington, NJ 07676-4323
(201) 666-6121

We won it! In the final Jerry and I (7.0) out played the 7.5 from the get go in a timed match. Something to talk about.

Remember its sportsmanship that count, not gamesmanship. Congratulate to my comrades and thank you. Have fun at the tennis camp.

I just got this new toy Babolat’s Roland Garros edition: it feels great and does wonder, maybe it can cook dinner and serve drink too if I explore it more.
I’ve been using the left over from my kids and then using Pumpkin’s Andy Roddick Pure Drive, which is about 11 oz. When Pumpkin first purchased, I didn’t like it due to its weight. But when I broke one of the rockets, I began to use it and began to like it.

Afterward we went to A Taste of Shanghai in Flushing, had a tasty dinner.

The exciting tournament is coming soon: Sat., June 25 at Washington Township tennis club. You will meet many old and new tennis friends on that day. 23 teams and more than 140 players will attend this big event.

June 1 match

Captain Cuthbert forfeited two courts, gave ys a sweep. 10 players roster to fill five courts/8 players seemed bit stretched. Reportedly the girl who served me a bagel was on Wong’s team last season. So it isn’t in the stone that once a player played on the team s/he is bond to stay, forever. Shifting alliances do happen in the league.

Field of Dreams

This part of the school athletic fields I seldom visit. They’re pretty much in demand because many times they’re being used by other schools or groups. Sunday mornings are always reserved for the baseball men, even on Mother’s Day. Baseball is called the summer game, boys of the summer. I don’t really have patient for it but I like to play the game myself. There is a commanding feeling when you are at base, ready to swing the bat. The entire diamond field is at attention, despite the pitcher is considered the heart of the game.

Some day, I will play it again. Some day.
