Cleveland Rocks

The Cleveland Open certainly rocked the MCA Nine Wicket Series this past weekend as all four of the points' races saw new leaders at the top of the standings after this weekend's action at the Cleveland Croquet Club. The fun started in the Pro Division, as former USCA Nine Wicket National Champion Matt Smith came into the event with the idea of ending Matt Griffith's participated tournament win streak of six. Smith had a couple of MCA events under his belt, but the Cleveland Open is the first one where he planned to participate in the knockout round.

2016 Cleveland Open Deadline: June 7

The 2016 Cleveland Open sign-up deadline is tomorrow (Tuesday, June 7) at 7:00 p.m. we already have 19 players that have shown interest. The list of current commitments and interested players follows. Pro is set for Saturday and Silver is set for Sunday. We have low entries for both Gold and Bronze, so there is the potential that we could merge Pro/Gold as we have done in the past and essentially run Gold as a consolation bracket. That would shift Gold to Saturday. We may need to make adjustments with the Bronze group as well and I will communicate directly with those players.
