Next up in the analysis of 2016 USTA League year-end bump ups is the 3.0 level.
Here are the 3.0 women bump percentages by section.
At the 3.0 level, there are a lot more bumps up than down, not a big surprise as players improve. And for the 3.0 women Southern Cal and Southwest lead the way with around 19% of players bumped up, with Caribbean not far behind. And no section had fewer than 10% bumped up.
Hawaii had virtually no bump downs, and no section had more than 5% bumped down.
Here are the bump percentages for the 3.0 men.
And we have a winner! Hardly any 3.0 men were bumped down, and over 40% of Southern Cal 3.0 men were bumped up! And these don't include self-rates, these are just players that were 2015 year-end 3.0Cs and improved this year to 3.5. Nice weather encourages folks to play and improve, or there were a lot of sandbaggers in 2015 getting C ratings.
