    In the tournements you`ve been to do you find any difference in the play , cuz down around here i`d almost go out on a limb and say the junior kids i have played are better than the inters ive played both and junior almost seems more challenging , maybe just because in the junior age thier are more kids that play a club type play and in the inter there is just the odd time you find a very good player i have found at least

    For me, i found Juniors are easier...the ones i play only like to do one thing....smash, the inters actually move you around the court more. hehe

    This past tourney i was suprised in how well some of the junoir kids played i played this one kid that just about never hit he just tryed to work you until you were to tired to dig side to side shots , but then again his coach was hard core and watch everyone of my games all day (bastard ) still could have beat him but played oen to many games and i was dead tired and needed a nap. But still the skill of 2 of the junior kids really suprised me

    yes i am a senior, g12. and you don't really get to pick. basically 5 people are selected from tryouts, then we play amongst ourselves, and im assuming the coach will pick who plays what. i excel the best in singles though or at least i'm the most comfortable with it.

    ben chan, i think he was in grade 12 last year, so i do not see him anymore.
