KC Corporate Challenge Sees Return of Tennis Competition

Sydney Hamilton | April 28, 2023


It’s the most wonderful time of the year for employees looking forward to competing against others as they represent their companies in the annual Kansas City Corporate Challenge! Now in its 43rd year, this Olympic-style event is bigger and better than ever (per the event’s website, the Challenge features twice as many competitors as the actual Olympics!), with hundreds of employees representing dozens of Kansas City-area businesses vying for the top spot in events such as swimming, pickleball, soccer, basketball, and, of course, tennis.

 

This year’s tennis competition is gearing up to be one of the most competitive yet, with tons of entrants across multiple divisions in both the men’s and women’s events. The men’s event kicks off Sunday, May 7, and continues through Sunday, June 4, whereas the women’s event runs from Sunday, May 21, through Sunday, June 4. All matches will be played at the Kansas City Racquet Club in Merriam.
