To the Tasmanian Tennis Community,

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 in Tasmania. 

“It is with sadness we confirm the Hobart International will not go ahead in 2021,” Darren Sturgess, Tennis Tasmania General Manager said.

“The Australian Pro Tour events in Launceston and Burnie will also not take place.”

“As you can imagine the logistical challenge created by the pandemic has forced us to make this decision.”

“We look forward to planning a big Hobart International and the rest of our tournament calendar for 2022.”

More information on the Summer of Tennis calendar will be available soon.
