I'm so bummed! I got on a 3.5 team, and now days later I'm off. Talk about your short 3.5 career. What happened was that I put myself on the list of 3.0 players looking for 3.5 teams, and I got a bite immediately from a 3.5 captain. She offered me a spot without a tryout (one of her players knew me); I accepted and sent in my check. She seemed very nice, and we started feeding each other leads. If she declined a 3.0 for her team, she'd send them my way. I in turn hooked her up with her best 3.5. All was well. Then we learned about the 2-player rule in our league. If two players are on my 3.0 team, those same two players cannot be on the same 3.5 team. It turned out that 4 of my 3.0 players were interested in this 3.5 team. Well, OK. The 3.5 captain would just have to decide who she wanted, right? She held a try-out last Friday that all of us 3.0s attended, and she considered me to be the strongest of the group. :fist pump: She gave me the team code. That's when the wheels came off the bus. She wanted me to sign up and claim my spot right now, but I didn't want to do that if she was also planning to make offers to my three teammates later. If she took all four of us, two of my best 3.0 players would have to leave my 3.0 team. I told her I thought the best resolution was for her to promise to only extend offers only to two of the four of us. After all, these are my existing players; they are not referrals from this other captain. Really now, is her 3.5 team so weak that she has to fill it with the third- and fourth-strongest players on a middling 3.0 team? So I felt I had to bow out, in an attempt to hang onto 3 of the 4 players. And it's getting late to try to find another 3.5 team willing to take a flyer on a 3.0 like me with a middling record in TennisLink. And I don't have the energy to do any more tryouts anyway. Oh, well. I guess 3.5 will have to wait until next year. Stoopid 2-player rule!
