ITF Announces Cancellation of 2020 Seniors World Championships
With all competition sanctioned by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) suspended until at least July 13 in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the ITF and USTA worked diligently in recent weeks to explore all options which would have allowed the 2020 ITF Senior World Championships to be moved to another set of dates in this year's calendar
After working closely with venues, event partners and independent travel advisors, it has been determined that it will not be possible for the event - originally scheduled from April 26 to May 9, in Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. - to be rescheduled in 2020
Protecting the health and well-being of players, officials, guests, club members and local communities has remained the top priority, and as such, the ITF Seniors World Team & Individual Championships (50-55-60 years of age), will not be held this year.
The 2021 ITF Seniors World Team & Individual Championships will take place in Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens, with dates for both the team competition and individual competition to be announced in due course.
The ITF Young Seniors (35-40-45 years) World Championships scheduled for Sept. 13-26 in Umag, Croatia and the ITF Super-Seniors (65-70-75-80-85 years) World Championships scheduled for Oct. 11-24 in Mallorca, Spain both remain on the 2020 calendar as of the present time.
