The 2022 MoKanNeb Adult Tournament Series Kicks Off Soon–Here’s What You Need to Know
Playing in tournaments might just pay off if you participate in this year’s MoKanNeb Adult Tournament Series! This is a wonderful opportunity for Open-Level players looking for advanced competition–with a nice twist we think you’ll like.
By playing in at least three of the following tournaments across USTA Missouri Valley, you could be eligible to earn prize money, and you’re all but guaranteed to have some fun and friendly competition along the way:
May 27-29: Omaha Memorial Day Open at the Koch Tennis Center in Omaha, NE (USTA Nebraska)
June 3-5: Jayhawk Adult Open at Kossover Tennis Center in Topeka, KS (USTA Kansas)
June 24-26: HOA Kansas City Open at the Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City, Missouri (USTA Heart of America)
July 23-24: Wichita MTC Open at Riverside Tennis Center in Wichita, KS (USTA Kansas)
Players may qualify for the MoKanNeb Series prize money by playing in at least three of the tournaments listed above.
The MoKanNeb Adult Tournament Series will have Men’s Open, Women’s Open, and Mixed Open divisions for 2022.
Points and Scoring
Players will earn points based on where they finish in the tournament. These points are cumulative across all events played and will be used to determine final standings for the prize money.
The top male and female players with the most points earned throughout the MoKanNeb Series will earn $500 each. Individual tournaments may also offer their own prize money; however, this is to be determined at the time of printing.
Congratulations to last year’s winners!
After the 2020 MoKanNeb Adult Tournament Series was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 series saw players take to the courts to battle it out for the prize money. Ray Lo of Wichita, KS, who also plays tennis for Wichita State University, took home the top prize in the Men’s Open division by scoring the most points.
While no female players qualified for the prize money in 2021, Maria Titova of Lawrence, KS, earned the most points of any female player with 24. Titova also won last year’s Kansas City Open in the Women’s Open division.
Congratulations to Ray, Maria, and all participants for a competitive 2021 MoKanNeb Series! We can’t wait to see who comes out on top this summer.
