I lose 1 & 2 at national level 45 + agegroup tournaments as a 3.5, maybe older players are just kinder!
I'm curious, do you know any D1 schools in particular playing at that level? So if they join USTA, they would be required to be a minimum of like 5.5 even though they may only be as good as a 3.5? If they suck really bad in the USTA can they be bumped down several levels?
