2016 USTA League Nationals start this Friday! 2.5, 4.0, and 5.0+ get underway for 18+

2016 USTA League Nationals get underway this Friday with the 18 & over 2.5 and 5.0+ levels playing in Mobile, AL and the 4.0 level being played in Rancho Mirage, CA.

As a taste of what one can get in a flight report to scout opponents at Nationals, here is a full roster average for a flight being played this weekend.

This is one flight from Women's 4.0 championship has what appears to be a number of competitive teams.

Team NameAverage Rating
Intermountain - WYOMING3.88
Texas - Wichita Falls3.82
Caribbean3.77
Middle States - AMD3.76

While there is a 0.12 spread here, using full roster averages means a large roster or carrying some players playing up can artificially lower an average.  And Caribbean is, well, an island, and so doesn't have much connection to other sections and how they compare and will do always has a little variance.

If you are interested in seeing more details including the top-8 average to show how strong a team as with their best, and seeing the average of who played by court so you can see if a team tends to stack or not, a flight report is what you need.  I can of course do team reports too offering even more details.

So good luck to all those playing this weekend and play well!
