Part of the process was a sell-evaluation of one's playing strength based on NTRP guidelines but subject to change (by the league administrators) depending on one's performance in any particular season.
I guessed myself to be about a 3.0 when I started. Based on my performance against who I've played I'm guessing that they'll probably keep it at that.
I'm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As far as I know, there aren't any USTA leagues around here.
Yes, I joined a similar non USTA singles league here where I live. We play at a city park once a week, I play 8 matches and then we start a new session. Works out pretty good.
