If that is your main goal, or even in the top three, you might be better off taking a dancing class or something.
Or just play socially, in mixers or mixed doubles nights or something. But this is not really a typical league tennis attitude.
We have all run into people who take a league match too seriously, but maybe the OP is on the other end of the spectrum.
If your main goal, or even in the top three, is to win at league tennis or be ultra competitive, I hate to break it to you but at the end of the day, you're victories and league standing mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.
You might be better off improving your skills so that you can actually compete at the pro level where victories actually mean something and result in tangible rewards, like, you know, vast sums of money.
