VERO BEACH, March 19, 2020 (Press Release)
The International Tennis Federation and the U.S. Tennis Association announced Wednesday that due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis around the world, all tennis events on the ITF World Tennis Tour would be postponed through June 7, which includes the Mardy Fish Children’s Foundation Tennis Championships, which was set to be played April 26 – May 3 at The Boulevard tennis club.
In an email Wednesday to tournament directors affected by the postponement, U.S. Tennis Association Competitive Pathway Senior Director Megan Rose said, “We are unable to discuss rescheduling options due to the uncertainty of the overall timeline. However, we will do our best to look at the remainder of the 2020 calendar and see where we can try to make adjustments.”
The Mardy Fish Children’s Foundation is committed to holding an event in 2020 but only after the environment is safe for fans, players, officials and volunteers.
