I wasn't suggesting that they could only play in their county, just that hypothetically, if DC was worried that non-residents were pushing out residents from DC leagues, they could try to limit the number of non-residents,not totally ban them.... but I doubt anything like that would happen.
Also, curious about what happened in PG, if players were bumped up to a level where they are not competitive, I don't see how playing USTA in another area helps. A 3.5 in PG still have to play 3.5 in DC or VA.
