I have joined a cheap club for the summer and it seems like it's mostly 3.0-3.5 players so I usually end up with a 3.0 to offset the difference and it can be VERY frustrating!
This one guy came up and he looked impressive physically, like he could really crush the ball. Then I saw his strokes, and my sails were instantly deflated. He was having a very hard time getting ANYTHING over the net! He told me he had a stronger backhand side, which is not to be confused with actually having a backhand.
The only games we won were on my serve and it was a sorry fest from my partner the entire night.
I think I am going back to my old club, you get what you pay for I guess.
