The California Dream is a World TeamTennis (WTT) team that plays at Dream Stadium at Sunrise Mall in Citrus Heights, California in the United States of America. The team was founded in 1993, as the Kansas City Explorers. After 20 seasons in Kansas City, the team moved to Irving, Texas for the 2013 season and was renamed the Texas Wild. On February 23, 2015, WTT announced that a new ownership group had taken control of the Wild and moved the team to California, renaming it the California Dream.[1] The Dream is the oldest continuously operating franchise in WTT.

The franchise won its only King Trophy as WTT champions in 2010, as the Kansas City Explorers.

Team history

The Kansas City Explorers were founded in 1993, and represented Kansas City in WTT for 20 seasons before moving to Irving, Texas for the 2013 season. The Explorers were 2010 WTT Champions.

The Texas Wild were based in Irving for two seasons.

Interim placeholder logo used when the franchise's move to California was announced.

Upon the announcement of the franchise's move, WTT used a simple placeholder logo to represent the team on its website in lieu of the Wild logo.

Alternate logo of the California Dream.

The new Dream logo was unveiled at the WTT draft on March 16, 2015. There are two basic versions. The version including an outline of a map of the state of California (shown above) is used on both the WTT and Dream websites. An alternate version without the map (shown at the left) is used by the Dream on its Facebook and Twitter accounts.
