Following months of extensive discussions with governments across the country and multiple scenarios considered, unfortunately due to the many logistical challenges created by the pandemic the Australian Summer of Tennis will be played in Victoria in 2021.
This decision has been made because of the restrictions in every State and Territory which make it impossible for the players to prepare properly and for us to run our normal summer program here in Canberra.
“We started the year by moving the Canberra International to Bendigo under trying circumstances, and unfortunately 2020 has continued to be a year of challenges and tough decisions,” said Tennis ACT CEO, Kim Kachel.
“While we are disappointed that we won’t see the Canberra International here in January, we are very pleased the Australian Summer of Tennis will proceed. The players love Canberra and we are sure they will be back in the future.
More information on the Summer of Tennis calendar will be available soon.
