You do get credit for being persistent though.
Persistence is a key to making change.

You offer no solutions only your opinion about what players, parents and fans think. I have taught hundreds of high school players and the top 1/2 of varsity would definitely be behind this change. The lower half would be against it, but most would work harder to try to make varsity, and everyone else is participating to participate. The parents will follow the kids' opinions.

If all other sports copy the college format, why does tennis coninue to create it's own version of what team tennis should be played like. College tennis is outstanding and high school should try to mimic it as much as possible.
You haven't read my posts, I did offer input on what would help.

We'll have to agree to disagree. I think your idea will hurt HS tennis and it's clear that most everyone else here agrees. On the other hand, if you think it is such a great idea, you should have no problem getting it to catch on.
