2017 USTA League Year-End Rating Analysis - 3.5 Bump Up/Down Percentages - Interesting Tennis League Stats

I already wrote about the 2017 year-end bump up/down percentages and also by gender, and started looking at levels with the 4.0 men and women, now onto the 3.5 men and women.

First, the 3.5 women by section.

Unlike the 4.0 women, every section had more players bumped up than down in this category.  Southern California had the most bumps up at nearly 10% while Northern had the most bumps down at about 5.5%.  But no section had less than 2.5% bumped down so there was movement both ways.

And then the 3.5 men by section.

Every section had more bumps up than down by a pretty wide margin.  Southern Cal and Texas both had over 12% of 3.5 men bumped up but no section had less than 7% bumped up.  And bump downs were rare, no section even having 4% bumped down.

What do you think?  What does this mean for 3.5 play in your section in 2018?
