I went to a Meetup group, all Meetup groups are doubles. There were a lot problems before playing due to the lack of available courts. After those problems were resolved, here is the other problem. There were 7 people. 4 went to play doubles, that's fine, I prefer singles. There are now 3 left. I came on the court first. I tell 1 guy, we'll count like ping-pong to 21, 20-20 is a draw (the game would lasts an average of 17 minutes), then we'll rotate. He says "I don't want to play singles." He way he looked speaks more that what he said. I realized that playing doubles for him is like a zebra disappearing in a crowd of zebras. Playing singles forces you to stand out, on your own. I said the same thing to the other guy. Same thing. "I don't want to play singles, I just want to hit." The first guy says, "Well it's 2 to 1." So they proceeded to hit around with each other, ignoring me. I was flabbergasted. I come from a chess background. We are here to play chess. We are here to play a chess game. I quit that Meetup that day, and I made my own singles tennis Meetup club that day. Your thoughts?
