Kansas City Open Brings the Heat to Plaza Tennis Center

Sydney Hamilton | July 09, 2022

The USTA Heart of America Kansas City Open recently wrapped up on June 26. This weekend-long tournament brought players from all over the country to the Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City as they vied for the top of the podium of their respective draws in the 18 & Over division.


While the Kansas City Open is part of the MoKanNeb Adult Tournament Series in which Open-level players compete to win their draws and play for a shot at a $500 cash prize, it was also open to players 3.0 and above. Both the men’s and the women’s events featured incredible competition, and we’re proud of all who showed up to play in this great event.
