Several times, players at courts declined to play with my friends and I, or made a lot of faces and comments because we were there. My comment about moving on was from experience. I know better rated players that have moved on to different courts to seek players at their level.

I think so, IMO your not beginner! You know how to keep score, where to stand, and probably can hit the ball back and forth. IMO that would be immediate or avanced beginner which IMO again good for open play at majority Rec. centers
The unwritten rule Saddlebrook and Minoa open are 4.5 and 5.0 clicks

Well, then. I'm better than I thought!! That makes me happy. And, yes, I did hear about the "click thing" at certain places. Who I'm speaking of found a nice group of non-clickies to play with. I guess I'm just sensitive to people that wanna come play and are ashamed of making a fool of themselves or too intimidated to play. I really do enjoy the game, and we have a lot of laughs. I'm just not very competitive, I guess. I always say I'm rated a strong .0005. Maybe by now, I'm a 1.5!!

Don't sell yourself short. IMO 75 % have the same outlook as you and me, just like to play and have fun. Few at Saddlebrook is the only place I heard of were they get nasty.
