Who has played the most USTA league matches? - Interesting Tennis League Stats

I wrote earlier this week about where players have played the most USTA leagues.  The natural next question is where players have played the most league matches.

Again, looking across the main 18 & over, 40 & over, and 55 & over leagues and in leagues that are part of the 2015 league year, some areas do stand out.

For the women, leading the way is a player from Athens Alabama that has played a whopping 82 league matches so far.  How can this be?  They've taken advantage of their proximity to Georgia and played in both states, and with both states multiple 2015 seasons that started around a year ago, there have been lots of opportunities.

Another from Montgomery Alabama has tallied 75 matches, and another female from Marco Island Florida has gotten to 73, also taking advantage of early start leagues.  After that there are others in the 60s and 70s from Maryland, Texas, New Jersey, Missouri, and Georgia, but there are more from Alabama near the top than any other.

What about the men?  A player from Madison Alabama has totaled 88 matches played, and the next two are from Decatur and Madison Alabama at 71 and 68 and then one from Columbus Georgia at 60.  Some other states with players in the 50s include California, Minnesota, Illinois, and South Carolina.

So you all have a goal now, you need to get to 70+ matches to compete with those that play the most!
