    Sadly I dont think I have what it takes to play college tennis. Even though im a sophmore I dont have the finance to get to that level in 2 years. so i was wondering what is there to do after you are to old for 18's ustas

    Learn how to spell "too old" before you leave high school.


    otherwise, go play tennis in community college, play futures, play adult USTA.

    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.
