Default Advice to Parents

The best development scenario is to have two divisions to compete in. If you are strong in your division, also blend in the next higher division to allow yourself more match opportunities and to play against more size and pace. However, too many players play up in their sections and stay up at the national level where they are not competitive. Try to go deep into national draws by staying in your age group, and compete in your age group and the next one up sectionally to help your level of play and add to your match experience. 60% to me is a minimum winning %, and great players are more likely to be at 80%.
