Good Morning, Anxious & Rarin’ to go Tennis Players of Shelter Rock!

  The Sun is bright, the breeze gentle and refreshing..the side watchers by the card room look at the slow and lazy arc of the ball on court #8..wait… wake-up….I must be dreaming!
Out of this scenario, I think of the upcoming months of great play and happiness here at the ‘Rock…so , we have to wait a bit longer..but our season is pending!
Just a few short notes and quips from Tennis Central, AKA “The Shelter Rock On-Line Gazette”!..
Will the Boys of summer keep that clock turned back? I’m talking about inspirational guys like Richie “Mr. Weed” Slone, “Sweet” John Price, Manny “The Myth” Alani,  Jack “The Forehand ” Goldberg, Freddy”The Hammer ” Fisher, Arthur”Killer” Kay, Larry” All World” Werfels and too many more to mention..oh yeah. one more : Back from Knee replacement and looking forward to showing  off his smooth stylings, Billy Breakstone!.. 
BTW: Let’s not forget our lady members! Cora Baliff still going strong as is Evie Wyman, who participated in many of this Writer’s/Tennis Director’s drills this past indoor season!
I hope y’all have a wonderful tennis season..
Will Steve “Suss” Sussman AKA “The magician ” continue his relationship with the SRTC ball machine?.. They’ve spent the Winter apart, but you can bet he’ll be out there practicing his much improved game!
Speaking of Steve, Much is expected from the Four Musketeers!
I’m talking about Joe Lasala, Eddie Rutkovsky, Mark”Mr. Z” Zelnick & the aforementioned magician!.. Go get ’em !
