Hi all, need some help here. Someone has to remind me why I am playing this game. I need reminders about how wonderful tennis is. I joined another team for the fall but am with my old team for another combo group but am getting the cold shoulder like you would not believe. The other team is higher up and I am a newbie but they have been so great to me. So welcoming. My other team has been so cold to me and did not even say good bye to me in our last practice last weekend. It was so weird. I don't get it. I just want to play up and not deal with getting the beer after wards, shopping dates, parties and networking that seems part of this team's dynamics. I want to be friends but I just am not into all that stuff but a hello on the courts would be nice. We all started off at the same level but I am committed to getting better at this game and putting myself through the wringer to get there and taking myself out of the comfort zone of winning in the 3.0 range to try and get to a 3.5 status. Anyhow, this past weekend, no one said hello to me, no one returns my emails regarding ball money, no one even says good bye to me. For one weekend match my teammates hardly bothered to warm me up. I really believe this is targeted to hurt me and if that is what they are trying to do, it's really working. Don't know what to do. My captain seems to be spearheading this endeavor and about a week ago after a match she started telling me in the parking lot that I would be really busy with school, a new job and another team. I think it was the drum roll that she did not want me on the team in the fall but can't bring herself to say it but wants me to say it:cry:. Help here people. This is so hurtful. I've never experienced this kind of hazing before. Please tell me why you play. Remind me why I play this game.
