I guess self ratings... I don't think they rely on any of that strict USTA stuff. I think it's a basic estimation of the level to expect in that division. The first time I played in it, the director sort of had me "try out" just so he could be sure he wasn't signing up someone who clearly didn't belong. The thread about the tryout is still deep in the long forgotten pages of TW...I think back in 2005, the year of my second re-embracing of the game. I'm on my fourth now. Haha. Life keeps getting in the way of my sustained progress.
