..... after hearing all these horror stories about sandbagging etc... I think I might just skip it. I play solely for fun I do not need trophies or recognition I just want to play and have fun. I would guess I am about 3.0 player (maybe 3.5) and I wonder if it is worth the hassle to play in a tournament. It seems no one is ever happy or has fun. I still might try in the spring but I am not as excited as I once was. I mean what is the point of playing in a tournament (paying whatever amount in time and money) to get my butt kicked in the first match by a sandbagger. If I knew I would be able to play a fair amount of tennis (ie. more than 2 or 3 sets) I think I would be more excited.
