Alright, I'm a senior in high school. I've played on the varsity team for two years in doubles positions, and I've never played in any USTA tournaments and therefore I have no ranking (I want to join later on sometime this year though, for experience.) I'm relatively clueless on how college tennis works. When do most people, upon entrance in college, join the team? Is it common, uncommon, etc. for freshmen to be on the team? Sophomores? etc... I want to apply to UCLA/UCSD/UC-whatever schools, and if I get accepted, I'm interested in finding out how I can play for them. However, I honestly say I'm not a very good player [I have experience and am relatively skilled, but I lack the kind of play needed.. if I were to self-rank myself, I would say I'm no more than a 3.5. Maybe if like, a 3.75 existed I would squish myself there but honestly I have no idea what kind of player I am. I intend to submit a video of myself playing on the forums to *hopefully* receive some feedback on the kind of player I am.] For these kinds of schools, how skilled do you need to be? What do the schools expect from you, and how can I best prepare myself (If I even have a chance of making it?) I heard that the players for these kinds of colleges are all extremely skilled, and have accumulated plenty of records from USTA tournaments and stuff. If that's the case, I don't think I have any business looking forward to college tennis, but if possible I'd still like to learn about how it all works. I realize I have asked a lot of questions, and I thank anyone who offers some help/advice. Thanks!!!
