The Kansas City Explorers were a World TeamTennis team that played at the Barney Allis Plaza in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, USA. The team also played in Kemper Arena from 1993 until 2001. Following the 2012 season, it was announced that the Explorers would be moving to Irving, Texas (now known as the Texas Wild). The move followed the team's twentieth season in Kansas City and was likely due to a lack of corporate sponsorship in the Kansas City area.

Championships[edit]

In 2010, World TeamTennis awarded the Championship Game to Kansas City. The Kansas City Explorers & New York Sportimes were the two finalists, with the Explorers taking the victory on their home court by a score of 21-18. It was the first time the Championship Game had been played Kansas City.[1]
