Way too expensive to get good competition. Entry fees are 75 bucks at a national, in france it cost 75 bucks total to play a tournament, including gas money.
and in the states if you are actually a good player it costs even more. In France the young players get money from clubs and sections when they reach a certain level.

after seeing how it is there, i cant even tell kids why they should be playing tennis here....honest, but its the truth.
