Due to the repercussions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with great regret that Tennis Canada announced on Sunday the cancellation of seven international Junior, Senior and Wheelchair ITF events scheduled for June, July and September.
The health and safety of all athletes, officials, organizers, volunteers, coaches and spectators remains our top priority. A combination of current health measures, restrictions on travel and COVID-19 hosting protocols mean these events are not viable this year.

“It is really disheartening that these events were cancelled knowing these decisions are never easy to make given the impact on our athletes, partners, families and communities” commented Hatem Mcdadi, Senior Vice President of Tennis Development at Tennis Canada.
“That said, the safety and welfare of all involved continues to be our top priority coupled with running world-class events. Given the current conditions, we believe this decision is in the best interest of all involved.”
