    State and Sectional Survey email

    didnt hear of anyone locally receiving this survey email but it appears Southern Section has come to 'somewhat' a conclusion on post-season. On the southern.usta website there is updated language of continuing with a Sectional championship (have other sections decided/stated on their sectional...

    USTA Automatic Appeal System Issue

    This is wild. From my observation - appeal rated players are having a hard time finding teams locally. The season is underway and teams have a roster cap max of 21 players. Due to the great southern bump, the top teams in leagues lost numerous players and generally the top teams usually keep a...

    Farewell to @nytennisaddict

    One of my fav forum posters. Glad he didnt disable his account. He is missed from the interwebs but guarding our country at the moment.

    First time recording match play. Advice please

    You could've just played outdoors if you were wanting to play in an after-dusk environment.

    Only 1 singles for Nationals 40+ :(

    I failed to mention in my original post that Southern USTA has also gone away with Mobile AL for 2020 Sectionals except for Combo. Nice to see Rome GA on the docket for once and other locations like Auburn AL. Played in Sectionals years back at Auburn University - great complex. Years of...

    2019 All TT Team - 4.0 Men

    y'all did quite well at Nationals + the Southern Bump, im not surprised.
  17. BeyondTheTape

    Bumps by section 2020.

    We play the 5 court format for 4.5+. There are as many 40&Over 4.5+ teams as there are 18&Over 4.5 teams locally. The distribution of our new 5.0s came out to be 1/3 high school mercenaries, 1/3 40+, & 1/3 SOL. So that league is just taking on a handful who will now play up a line.

    Bumps by section 2020.

    i dont see them complaining but i dont see them forming a 5.0 18+ league either. Some of them were high school hired-hand mercenaries anyways. Other recent 5.0s are 40+ and will just play the 4.5+ 40&Over league now. Those <40 are SOL.

    Bumps by section 2020.

    locally we now have 28 5.0 players. Last year we had 9. An increase of 68% new 5.0 players.

    2019 All TT Team - 4.5 Men

    Only 1 singles for Nationals 40+ :(

    Welp...no more Mobile AL for 2020 as it is not a site for any age/rating level for 2020 Nationals. Only a location for Southern Combo Sectionals in 2020. Everyone raise a glass for our unbeloved tennis facility.

    Yet Another 2020 Rule Change - Grievances Against Captains of DQ'd Players

    Not sure if im interpreting the rule correctly or not. Does this rule mean that Texas's (im okay TX bashing) 4.0 teams will be filled with 3.5S (getting promotions to 4.0) instead of 4.0S (getting DQ'ed) to get past this rule?
