We've waited quite some time, but the results of the 2015 USCA Grand Prix have not been made public. So, this poll which ran in January last year has been delayed. The USCA traditionally announces their Player of the Year based on the winner of the Grand Prix. This Croquet Network poll is intended to provide a people's US player of the year choice. The nominees are based on the following:

USCA Visits the Capitol

The United States Croquet Association has designated October 4, 2015 as "9 Wicket Croquet Day." In celebration, the USCA is hosting the National 9 Wicket Championship October 2-4, 2015, on the National Mall at West Potomac Park, Washington, D.C. The view from the courts should be spectacular with the Lincoln, Washington and Jefferson Monuments all in view. Registration will be at Ohio Drive SW and West Basin Dr. SW. 

There will be Championship flights in singles and doubles play for the National Championship title. Three time singles and doubles champion George Cochran will be returning with his winning soubles partner John Warlick. Another past Singles winner, Stephen Morgan of Capital Croquet Club will also be vying for the title.

We're also including any player that gained a USCA national title in 2014 along with some of the top finishers in the 2014 USCA Grand Prix, so you have plenty of options to vote for the best performance:

Morning Coffee: Soo Claims 2014 Grand Prix

TIGHT GP RACE FOR 2014: With 2014 in the books, that brings another USCA Grand Prix to a close. The standings show that Jeff Soo edged out Ben Rothman with 22,225 points to Rothman's 19,515. Based on Rothman's three national titles (USCA Singles, GC Singles and GC Doubles) versus Soo's two titles (AC Singles and USCA Doubles), it could again spell controversy for the USCA which uses the Grand Prix to select the USCA Player of the Year.

Morning Coffee: USCA 9W Nationals Primer

The USCA returns to Kansas City today to host the 2014 Nine Wicket National Championship at Liberty Memorial. It is arguably the most visible setting the sport has enjoyed since the days of Wimbledon. I suppose there is Central Park, but even those courts are sort of hidden away. Players will be in wide-open view near the Memorial and the National WWI Museum which all rests at the southern part of downtown Kansas City.
