    Playing with higher swingweight

    I did quite a bit of searching, also thought of posting in the racquet section but this may be more applicable. Just curious if, predominately by playing, you can "learn" to play with a higher swingweight racquet. I've mostly determined 325-330 (+/- a few points) seems ideal for me. However, it...

    Starting out: what level to compete at?

    I haven't played any kind of official match against anyone with an NTRP, so when my local summer league asks me what my rating is, do I just default to 2.5 even though I feel like I'm higher than that? I realize this might be a dumb question, but gauging what my level is seems to be elusive...
