But, then I hear of this TENCAP system and how it can eliminate most of those problems.
Apparently, TENCAP has a league in Kansas City that is very successful, and they are going to be expanding into the club system. It is a rating system calculated similar to a golf handicap, meaning it is completely based on play. So, supposedly you can't cheat the system. Scores are posted by club pros or team captains and ratings are calculated using an unique algorithm. So your rating changes all the time, not just within one season, or when your club pro says it changes.
If anyone knows anything about it, please post some info.
I have played Tencap for yrs it is a lot of fun the best part is making it to the finals. They play all the division finals in 1 day used to be 1 night but due to the number of divisions they make it all day now and at 2 different places. They have a huge dinner for the players and then everyone watches and cheers for thier own club players. One of the best enviroment's and most enjoyable Tennis events I have ever been a part of it is always followed by having the Top players and Local pros playing thier finals and seeing some awesome Tennis with lots of Beer. You also here of very few problems because I think the people who run it use commen sence and we all know that the USTA has never heard of that..... SA I am from KC also what club do you play out of and what is your rating.
