    The Future of CW Tennis

    With Nick having indicated that this could be the last tournament coming up, I just wondered what other people's feelings are about this? I've done some of the write-ups before, but haven't helped him out in a while, but would do so to help ensure it continues.

    I think the most frustrating thing has been the lack of numbers we've had despite the quality work & detail that he puts in. I'm wondering if it might be worth transferring the sim over to CricSim to get more uptake. Not sure how possible this would be, but the Tennis Sim over there is dead, and there's a lot of people who'd join in. Obviously it'd be pointless if the members here didn't transfer too - I'd hate to see the end of the Mustard/Davis doubles pairing, for example, but I'm guessing the key members here - Smith, Vimes, Kyle, Clapo etc. wouldn't be too keen on that.

    Anyway, would just appreciate other's views on how we can keep this going.

    What's CricSim?

    I'm happy to do anything possible to keep this running.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Maybe Cribb could help?

    I think we were hoping to do it in the next 50 years.

    A website Cribb runs that's pretty much a copy of the old Dev League...

    ...In that it's supposed to be a cricket simulator, but doesn't actually simulate any cricket... But it does occasionally have other sports simulated - Rugby, League, Soccer etc.

    Cricsim is pretty ghey. Would be sad to see the "Drake choke" disappear from mens professional tennis
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Better moderated though

    Seriously though, it would be good to keep this going in some way - given the death of the Dev League, and the daily hand-wringing that goes on in Forum Discussion; this is one of the only areas left here of harmless amusement.

    Yeah, I'm not all too keen to shift this over to Cricsim.

    I'll take a little break after Roland Garros and we'll see how we go from there. I do actually enjoy doing this and have continued on after being pretty much certain it was done a couple of times before (Wimbledon season I and then that awful indoor hard stretch between Nixonstown and the end of the season).

    Well mate, see if anyone else is willing to help and spread the load, maybe? Good to hear that the end may not be the end. Ideal!

    I'll consider playing if you introduce a 5th grand slam, to be played on carpet.
