Congratulations to Sam Esser, 2018 Missouri State Singles champion. Sam defeated Jeff Streibig in the semifinals before besting his good friend Max Langmack in the finals. The sky is truly the limit for Sam, it’s going to be exciting to see how great he is going to be.
Also congrats to KCAC member Tom Bembynista on winning the 60’s singles as well.

ALSO, check back soon as there are rumors of a Cinco De Mayo one day blind draw doubles tournament being organized. Should be good fun.
Ryan Willis and George Watson successfully defended their doubles championship on Sunday 3/18. Next up on the contenders are the former champs Hector Jr and Chip in what will be a fantastic rematch. I recommend getting a seat for this one. Stay tuned and I will post the date and time on the KCAC site. Check out the Doubles Championship site for all details.
Congratulations to George Watson and Ryan Willis in defeating former champions Hector Facio Jr and Chip Morales. Saturday morning, 3/03 they played in a barnburner with the new champs barely defeating them 11-9 in a tie breaker. This officially marks Watson and Willis as the best doubles team in Kansas City, so all handball competitors across the country, take note. Please check out the Belt pages to see when they have to defend, who the contenders will be (and yes a rematch has already been approved), and the legacy and results info.
