Week One of the Men’s Open Level League at the Plaza Tennis Center a Success
Last month, we shared with you all that an exciting new league–the Men’s Open Level League–was to kick off at the Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City on April 21. And kick off it did, indeed!
All day long, Kansas Citians were enjoying rainy, stormy weather, and it looked like the matches would need to be postponed. But later in the day, the storms cleared up, the courts were dried, and perfect tennis weather rolled in! The matches were pushed back to 7 p.m.; however, that just gave the spectators more time to arrive and help the players dry off the courts.
“It was really cool to see [the players and spectators] make that effort,” said David Fox of Overland Park Racquet Club, league captain and one of the league’s coordinators. “We had around 150 spectators, both juniors and adults, from multiple different clubs across town, which was awesome to see considering the time change of the matches and uncertainty throughout the day that matches would be played.”
Spectators were treated to an evening full of high-octane tennis, displays of great sportsmanship, and live music from DJ Boomer Green. “Many of the attendees commented on how it created an energetic and entertaining atmosphere for fans,” said Fox.
It was a night to remember, and we’re thrilled for David and all other players and coordinators to be involved in such an exciting league! The next event is on April 28–and there might be some special giveaways in store. Follow @kcopenleague on Instagram to stay up to date on all the goings on of the league.
