Due to the exceptional situation caused by the crisis related to COVID-19, it is with great regret that Tennis Canada announced on Tuesday the cancellation of all its ITF sanctioned tournaments that were still on the calendar until the end of the 2020 season. In fact, three other tournaments are being added to the cancellation list that was communicated on August 6, which originally included all national and international tournaments scheduled up until October 31.
Tennis Canada continues to closely monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and is in contact with Public Health Canada and the various national and international tennis organizations. Given the evolution of the crisis around the world, the recommendations from Public Health officials and the health and safety restrictions related to international travel requirements, Tennis Canada deems it more prudent to cancel its tournaments to ensure the health and safety of all.
Tennis Canada is also closely monitoring what is happening around the world in order to prepare for an eventual safe return to competition at the national and international level. The organization is working with its partners to explore all options and possibilities to strengthen the national competitive structure in the short term to allow our players to compete at home as travel restrictions continue to ease.
Tennis Canada will continue to communicate any changes with all stakeholders.
