From: Cliff Kurtzman <>
Date: Mon 16 Oct 2000 21:23:41 -0500

Here are two inquires I've recently received at Tennis Server
that I can't answer.


This first one is similar to MANY that we receive:

   From: "Mihai Colcer" <>

   Hello,first let me to present myself:I`m a Romanian tennis player,16 years
   old,boy,and I live into the middle of the country more exactly in the
   district Mures city Tg-mures St..Voinicenilor nr.94/10 tel

                   Thank you very muck anticipate

Is there any place to refer people, particularly those from poorer
countries, that don't have money for shoes or equipment to to travel
to a tournament?

   From: "jb" <>

   My uncle was out with his metal detector in Virginia and
   found a gold medal. On the back is inscribed Mens Singles
   Championship Match WINNER. On the front is Bay View 1925, with
   a man about to serve.

   I have tried to locate a Bay View tennis club, but have been
   unsuccessful so far. Could you please provide some information
   regarding this club? I would like to return the medal to the
   rightful owner, or a family member if possible.

   Thank you.


Does anyone have any idea how to help Jeff?

There are so many young people in our own country that want to play
tennis, but cannot afford the sport. Why are we concentrating our
efforts on other countries when our own children are not benefiting? I
live in the northern states, and indoor tennis is very expensive.
