This is my general attitude about it as well. As you said, we're out there to have fun, make new tennis friends, and hopefully improve while doing it. I haven't played that many league matches since getting back into tennis, and so far nobody who's competing at (or slightly above or below) my level has offered me any advice, and I haven't offered anybody at any level any advice. I think we realize that we're all playing more or less equally badly, and we're able to have a laugh about it.
The two players who did offer me advice are competing at a much higher level than me, and they did preface their advice with compliments, and since I had good hitting sessions with both of them, I was thankful for what they offered.
