Every court I've ever played on, including private clubs, has the net posted for doubles play. I play in a singles flex league. I've offered that we use singles sticks to a few of my opponents: virtually all of my opponents were not aware that the net was not regulation. I've even had one person specifically decline the use of them, because he felt it would grant me an advantage (because I'm practiced with them, and he is not). I agreed with him. Every time I brought them, I offered them with no pressure to use them, and left the decision entirely up to my opponent. I don't think using singles sticks is an insignificant change. The net plays much different than with doubles posts. There is this thread from 2009, but I decided to open up the conversation with a poll. In case you're unaware of singles stick, here you go: I've included a poll that allows you to select multiple options. Select all that apply.
