sandbagging

It would be great if teams didn't have to sandbag. However, it is a very common thing.

A way to prevent this is to change the point system. Each match..a team can win the max of 10 points.

If you win line 1...the team earns 4 points.
If you win line 2...the team earns 3 points.
If you win line 3..the team wins 2 points. If you win line 4..the team wins 1 point.

This system would discourage sandbagging.

I agree. Thankfully our team was very even across all lines. But I see your point -- If there could be a system inplace where points were distributed in a weighted fashion based on the lines - that might encourage less shifting. AS it is now, points seem to matter more than quality, fun tennis, right?
Who knows what will help the situation, but hopefully the board can figure out a good solution.

Let's just keep having fun playing!

As a newly formed team we have noticed at times opponents will place strongest players on line 4 while weaker players play line 1. Can this be addressed during fall captain's meeting?
