But, and I know if you are a coach, you might not want to give this advice as it directly affects your business,
but I would recommend playing HIGH SCHOOL TENNIS, especially in California.
Unfortunately, a lot of coaches discourage the kids from doing this as it directly hurts their pocketbook when a boatload of kids go to play high school tournaments instead of coming to their academy.......
I think it is a huge conflict of interest where I am seeing coaches actively discouraging kids from playing ( for free at high school practice) so they can come to the academy and pay.
Anyone hear any updated or any modification of the national schedule for 2013, 2014, please post on this board.
