Thanks again for posting it. I think there might be more parents here with little ones, as this is a big deal for juniors, age 12-18, and I am not hearing much noise. Shame if they are allowed to get away with this. Does anyone remember - A few years back, USTA dropped its national competition for 12-year-olds. The problem is that those kids became 18-year-olds and they lost two valuable years of national competition!!!! Although it was too late for those kids, the USTA realizing they made a huge mistake, and reinstituted the 12s competition. OUR BAD THEY THOUGHT. This is the institution that we are dealing with it. They made that change, and uh, for lack of a better words, they screwed that group of kids. Was it their kids? Had they paid for their tennis? Spent hours driving them to practice? No. So, they messed up that group. OOPS. Now, they are trying to mess up a lot more.
