Easy solution.

If someone asks you to be on the team, you can tell her:
"I have a lot of strong ladies on the team, so I can't guarantee that you would get a chance to play any matches." If she still want to join your team under that circumstance, then let her sign up, since obviously it's not about the tennis for her - it's about her need to feel included.

If someone whines about not being invited, tell her:
"I have a lot of strong ladies on the team, and I didn't think it would be fair to you to invite you if it was unlikely that you'd get a chance to play a match."

The only way these exchanges might become awkward would be if the player had an overly inflated view of her own skill level.
