    USTA NorCal "Facility Use Fee"?

    Reading that ridiculous email (sent at 9pm on a Friday night) brought one thought to my mind. They know they are wrong, and are clearly are going against the wishes of the vast majority of adult league players, but do not care because they will benefit. They have to know this will exclude lower...

    Sign the Petition to Stop NorCal’s “Facility Use Fee”

    Fair enough – I used to love playing in my club tournaments too. We used to travel to play other clubs as well. But the reality now is club players do form club teams and do want to play USTA team matches. The issue is I don’t think it should be my responsibility to subsidize if your club...

    Sign the Petition to Stop NorCal’s “Facility Use Fee”

    It’s tough to tell what the motivations are based on the meeting minutes. I think the board members who voted for this (somehow this is an anonymous vote) need to explain themselves but mostly they need to reverse their decision. Especially considering this has been voted down multiple times by...

    USTA NorCal "Facility Use Fee"?

    My first thought is this is some serious boomer crap. Voting their buddies in and milking as much money as they can for their own clubs. Considering this has been voted down multiple times before - this looks terrible for NorCal USTA.

    Interesting happenings with NorCal 40+ 4.5+ Nationals representative

    I do agree that its wrong to file a grievance after a match ends. I believe you have to stop the match if something is going on. FC is moving on and that looks like the right decision on that front. And I can imagine how frustrating it must have been but even you have to admit the optics on...

    Interesting happenings with NorCal 40+ 4.5+ Nationals representative

    Clearly question marks not statements because all of this sounds unreal. Thanks for the clarification. Seems pretty clear FC should go through on the Sectional grievance front. A win is a win was tongue and cheek reference to what everyone dislikes about what this team did. Filled with 5.0s who...

    Interesting happenings with NorCal 40+ 4.5+ Nationals representative

    This is interesting. A lot of hearsay from people who watched the match and some clarification from actual FS players. Still a lot of questions though. This is from the up-held former captain suspension email from May. “This suspension includes any association with any USTA NorCal team, as a...

    Interesting happenings with NorCal 40+ 4.5+ Nationals representative

    Pull up a chair for sure – Some good USTA drama. Here is the sub-plot from what I can tell Sectional Team A was originally captained by a person who has been sanctioned/banned by USTA NorCal for improper recruiting, score fixing, rating fixing, etc (this had been going on for years). A large...

    How many 5.0+ players at age 60+?

    The section I play in definitely has some 60+5.0s. Former pro or college guys who grew up serving/volleying, chipping returns and lobbing. Have to say it’s a pleasure playing against these guys. Lots to learn from experience and style of play. Nice thing about tennis

    Captains being discouraged from stacking in plus flights

    5.0s stacked at 1 doubles was a really annoying problem this year - happened quite a bit in our local league to avoid our 5.0 singles player. Completely wasted days for our 5.0 and it happened multiple times. Even worse was low 4.5s/4.0s getting dropped in at 1 singles and getting absolutely...
