2017 Kansas City Open: Nine Wicket Series Returns to Kactus Creek Croquet Club

Registration is open for the Kansas City Open nine-wicket croquet tournament to be held over two days at the end of July at Kactus Creek Croquet Club in Parkville, Mo.

The KC Open is the final regular-season tournament in the Midwest Croquet Association's Nine Wicket Series for 2017 and players' last chance to add to their points totals before the MCA Championship.

Please note: In 2017, the Pro Division takes its turn to play on Saturday — July 29. The lower divisions play on Sunday, July 30, this year. In 2016, the Pro Division played on the Sunday of KC Open weekend. Because of court availability, the divisions alternate days each successive year.

Sign up by Monday, July 24, at 6 p.m. Email kccroquetclub@gmail.com, or mark that you are "Going" on the Facebook event page.

Tournament entry fees are $20 for MCA members and $30 for nonmembers.

Lunch is not provided; however, Kactus Creek has a refrigerator and grill on site.

Gabe Gets Gold at 2017 Lee’s Summit T-Bone Croquet Tournament

Gabe Airrington took his success at the Lee’s Summit T-Bone Croquet Tournament to the next level on Saturday.

Returning to Howard Park, the site of his first tournament victory in the Silver Division in 2015, Airrington went undefeated in combined Gold/Silver Division block play in the morning and knocked out the four and two seeds to take first place in the Gold playoff in the afternoon. His block wins over the eventual Silver Division finalists, Eddie Mondt and Wanda Jackson, and his triumphs in the Gold Division proved he belongs in the Gold group in 2017 after a dominant 2016 in the Silver Division.

2015 MCA Gold Rankings Update

The MCA has updated the Gold nine-wicket rankings to include the 2014 season. This ranking data is a full career update and includes all events starting with the inception of the MCA Nine Wicket Series in 2013. 

The one-year 2014 Gold Rankings are available here. The simple ranking system is based on win percentage and average wickets scored per game. The system is an additional tool to be utilized by tournament managers for seeding blocks at MCA nine wicket events. The rankings system is based on games played within a division, so it is possible for a player to carry a ranking in multiple divisions.

Kansas City Open: Pro-Gold Sunday Schedule

PARKVILLE, MO -- With the limited courts and the worst number for a division (seven), we had to once again mix the Pro and Gold Division block play. The good news we've obliterated the MCA 9WS entry record with 21 players!

We'll work with four blocks of three with games starting at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. The top two from each block will advance to the eight player Pro Division playoff. The third place player in each block will play in a four-player Gold Playoff. Full schedule is listed below.

Airrington is Still Gold

LEAWOOD, KS -- Despite only playing one game, Taylor Airrington expanded his lead in the Gold Race as his two main rivals, Jodi Adams and Deborah Millican, made the cut for the Pro Playoff. Debbie Breeden made the most of her day with three gold games and now holds second place with 132 points. Three players are just behind Breeden, so things could get interesting as we head into the final two events for 2014.

Airrington Controls the Gold Race

Taylor Airrington entered the Oklahoma Open with a narrow four point lead in the Gold Race. But with Debbie Breeden opting out of the race it was up to Jodi Adams and Deborah Millican to close the gap. Airrington posts scores of 24-14, 30-11, 16-29 and 24-17 to keep his distance on the duo. In the end, he added another point to his advantage over Adams and kept the same 35-point lead he had over Millican. It's shaping up as a great race as now Bill Berg has slipped into fourth place in the race with only one event under his belt. It could be a wild one on July 12 when the Kansas Challenge rolls em' out for the next leg of the series.
