yeah man, i felt the same in high school, i was in state that didn't have much tennis, so never won anything in USTA tournaments, even though im solid 4.0, didnt feel like i would get much.

soo....i just play adult stuff now, its not bad, just waiting a bit to go to college, getting better, make sure i get on a team when its time for school again

Adult aint bad, even though i enjoyed junior tournaments more, playing old guys aint much fun, and there are a lot more usta junior tournaments

You can always participate in the USTA On Campus program if your college has it.

Are you planning on going to college? Im a senior in college and I played intramurals, on the college tennis club team, and some USTA 3.0-5.0 tournies. Also found plenty of friends to hit with.

Tons of opportunities to play. Much more than in high school.

Dude, eat sushi for a living. That's what I'll be doing instead of practicing in college during the season.

I really think that if you want to play college tennis, there's a spot for you. It may not be a DI, DII, or even DIII level, but there's the NJCAA and many community college leagues and such. I

I would rather go to a good school over playing tennis, I do to much to try to get into good colleges to go to community for tennis.
