OK, im from the UK with no intention of playing college tennis but I read a lot of thread on here and have no idea what you guys are talking about sometimes. I had a bunch of questions and I compiled the best answers in this thread! Can a D3 team get promoted to D2 though? Are the best D2 schools better than some of the weaker D1s? What age are students when they first begin at US college? What would a 4 start recruit be interms of UK ranking or rating? How much do guys and girls train each week? Who do the different colleges play and how often do they play? Is it college leagues or cup competitions? Is there much individual competition? What do these players do interms of tennis after college? Is there a league system in the US for the top adult players which don't make the cut for ATP or futures level or is it all individual (or doubles) competition at that point beyond college?
