I'm just curious to know the makeup of the motley crew on these boards. I suspect some of you are professionals, some are young amateur players and a lot of us are just fans/recreational players with too much time on their hands and an obsession with the sport (me :D ).

So go ahead and vote on who you really are. No one can see your choice on the poll so your vote remains anonymous in the hopes of honesty and a (close-to) accurate reflection of who comprise this online community.

Ok... sorry, looks like there is no way for me to change the poll now. I think "Recreational Player" is still appropriate since you don't earn a living at it.

For younger players its different since they may represent an entity such as a school or college even though they don't get any money for what they do.

Then this poll would have a lot more fake answers I think..

I don't think that's an exhaustive list. I can't figure out which one I am...

What would you label yourself, if you had the chance to create the categories I created.

I think the poll would be nice if it had reflected past status as well, I am a recreational tennis player now and tennis fan life time sure, but played for my university and country amateur status before 10 years ago.

Play Tennis for a living (ATP/WTA player)
Closely associated with professional game (e.g Stringer, Coach)
Young amateur tennis player (School/Varsity)
Coach or closely involved with amateur game
Recreational player and Tennis fan
Just a Tennis fan

You differentiate playing, and being involved with when you mention professional tennis. Then you only mention association to amateur tennis, or being a young amateur.

I'd say I was a young amateur, as I recently graduated from college, where I played for a D3 team my first two years. I wasn't sure what you meant by "young" though.
