So when I went to register for the league its said I was a 5.5 (which I am not)

Will this effect me in a negative way, or effect the team in any way?

Is there a way to correct this? I played in a 4.5 doubles tourney two months ago and won, so wouldnt I be a 4.5 by default?
First if you win a 4.5 tourney you should be 4.5 or higher not 4.5 by default.

Being top 20 in your section, even in a weak section should be better than 4.5. Did you have a national ranking? Maybe you don't play as much as you did then, but what are you- 23 years old? You easily get back into playing form in a couple months or so.

I would not play for this 4.5 team, unless you inform them that you could get DQ'ed if someone files a grievance or just by 3 strikes. I would say that there is a high chance that either of those will happen. Even if you don't have 3 strikes against you from match play all it takes is one person to find out about your background and you are in pretty much toast.
