Most people were either on a team, fed up with USTA league tennis or just weren't interested. If you have trouble meeting people for tennis how are you going to get 10-12 players at a particular NTRP level together?
You also have to find a club that will let you use them as a home court for matches. This actually was a harder than I thought it would be.
For a given USTA league match between teams, how many courts do you need and how much time needs to be allocated to the match?
