How much work goes into captaining a team?
Back-story: After winning the league with shocking ease last year, half of my 4.0 team was bumped to 4.5 including our team captain. So my club decided to field two 4.5 teams and let the remaining 4.0 guys play up. With only 7 guys still at 4.0 and seemingly not enough new recruits (I seriously doubt how hard they tried to find players) there was no 4.0 team this past fall. So I played 4.5, went 2-6 and I think improved my game a bit. This winter season I'm being moved to doubles on the 4.5 team. I was thinking of trying to get a 4.0 team going again. Partly so I can play more competitive singles, partly so I can kick a little arse and talk smack at the watercooler.
