    Should I enter by age (mens 55) or should I enter by level say 3.5- 4.0 or does it not matter?

    How are points accumulated as either a player that enters age based or level based tournaments? If I play both will I accumulate points jointly?
    Finally, I do not belong to a league. Will I encounter problems entering tournaments?

    Thanks

    Mens 55 is Open Level. That means, players can be 4.5++

    If you haven't played tournaments in a long time, I would try some 3.5's and see how it goes.

    Do I need to belong to a league to play NTRP 3.5 tournaments ?

    No, you don't have to belong to a league.

    To play a USTA tourney - you do have to be a USTA membership. As far as ratings (NTRP) go, you would self-rate.
