There is a mens 4.5 usta league team at our club. A kid just graduated from a NCAA D-I college this year and joined our club. The kid didn't play high school tennis in his country... probably was too good, or too busy training at an academy at the time. The captain of the 4.5 team was able to obtain a 4.5 rating for this kid using the self-rating website. The current self-rating site seems to have a loophole... when it asks if you played high school tennis, if you answer "no", then it doesn't bother asking about your college tennis. I warned the captain that he might be setting this kid up for embarrassment, or trouble with the league, but I think the captain is more interested in having a "ringer". Even though the self-rating questionnaire was answered "honestly", could this kid get into any trouble, such as getting banned from USTA leagues? Also, why is the self-rating site so naive to assume that you couldn't have played college tennis if you first didn't play high school tennis?
