Re: ratings

In response to the following analogy:
   "First of all it is important to view ratings like you would weight
classes in boxing. If one weight group is 140 pounds and under and
another is 150 pounds and under, obviously someone who is 141
pounds will be closer to the boxers in the group below him than
most of the ones that are in his own group. It wouldn't make ANY
difference, where you drew the line. If you changed it to 141 and
151 then you would help the guy who was 141, but would hurt the
guy who was 142 and they guy who was 150."

I disagree completely.

The system as it is, allows for no improvement in your game. If you are
rated as a 2.5 level player in September, then begin to work on your game in
preparation for league play to begin in February, the slightest improvement
will make you ineligible to play on a 2.5 team. Our section just completed
the USA Tennis League sectional playoffs this weekend and had several players
disqualified for incorrect ratings. The system is flawed and needs
revisions. Whether it will ever happen is questionable.

Subject: Tennis Participation Statistics
Date: Tue 15 Aug 2000 06:28:45 -0300

Anybody know where I can find information and/or statistics about
tennis participation in USA and other countries? I'm looking for
numbers of players, gender, ages, habits, number of clubs, etc. I'll
use this information in a International Tennis Symposium in Argentina.
Thanks in advance..
