I live up here in the northeast (Mass) and know for a fact that many clubs around here are struggling to get new members. Even some of the more established clubs are looking to get "new blood" especially younger members. Older members are not playing as much and attrition is weeding out others. I don't really recall this being an issue in the past and I am not exactly sure now. I am sure the time committment to play, the lack of family activities at many clubs and of course the expense are possible barriers. This now becomes a marketing challenge for clubs and they are more often than not ill prepared. Curious if you are finding this to be true in your geographic area.
