Grassroots tennis currently pays the bills but for how long? I am dropping out of the USTA when my 5 year membership expires this summer. I plan to play with friends, at the club, and at the local university, and skip the pricier USTA matches.
Probably obvious to most readers but this needs to be pointed out to some:
USTA does not set tournament entry fees, amenities/goodies, etc. Those are all decided by the host organization.
