Hi folks. I'm new to this board, although I've read here for a while now, and I'd appreciate some advice on how to bump up my USTA rating. I'm currently ranked 2.5 T (tournament-exclusive rating) in Texas, which I received from one tournament that I played in during July of last year (2 games won for per match for 2 singles matches). I've improved quite a bit since then, to the point where the head pro of my club has told me that I would "not be embarrassed" if I chose to play in a USTA 3.5 singles league this year. (I've never played league tennis of any sort.) There's no room on the club's USTA 3.5 team for me (and I'd never get to play, anyway), so I'm going to play Ultimate Tennis, instead. In the meantime, I'd like to play a few USTA tournaments with the goal of upping my USTA rating as quickly as possible. Any suggestions? Thanks very much in advance!
