To the editor,

Sadly, the last weekend of the summer tennis season is rapidly approaching but we are thankful for the beautiful weather we had all summer. It has been a stellar season and just wanted to thank the regular groups for their continued support starting with Deb Schlesinger and the Weekend Crew, the BLT’s, Jimmy and the Boys, Len & Stu and the newly formed BGTs. Also want to thank the Monday Night clinic participants and all those who took lessons and clinics through the summer.  Don’t forget the weather is beautiful in the fall so don’t pack your racquets away just yet.

The long hours in the gym would eventually pay big dividends after many disappointments. Develin had been cut by Cincinnati in both 2011 and 2012.
Last Sept. 2 he was cut by New England and then resigned four days later. He proved his worth by playing in 16 regular season games.
This year James is developing into a double threat, not only running over opponents but additionally catching passes from Tom Brady.
