Hall of Fame
There really isn’t “all this sandbagging” going on. It is very much overstated on this forum. Sure, there may be like one captain in Texas or something who tries to stack 4.0 teams with recent college players, but this is really uncommon. I would even say it’s rare. Almost all USTA adult rec tennis is just club teams and park teams of guys between the ages of 35-50 playing doubles with a few singles matches between sweaty tired old guys. You do see a mis-rated ringer from time to time, but these are dealt with appropriately in most cases. And people like to have playoffs, sectionals, nationals, etc, because it’s fun.I wonder if eliminating the carrot of districts, sectionals and nationals would stop all this sandbagging.
