I came back to tennis after about a 20 year hiatus in 2006. I got re-started at a club here in the Pacific Northwest, played a couple of tournaments and then was picked up for a couple of USTA teams. It's been a blast and I am really happy to be playing again. But I have some questions for the rest of you. I'd really like to hear about how other clubs and groups put together their USTA teams. There is a LOT of talent at the club I play at. But, as a group, we consistently manage to screw up opportunities to get to sectionals and/or opportunities to get to nationals. I personally believe that has as much to do with the way teams form at my club as anything it does with anything else. Teams form here without any input from our pros and their formed more along social lines than along any other type of system. So how about it? What do you do at your club, and does it seem to be working in terms of producing quality teams?
