1st April 2020
The ATP announces the suspension of the Mallorca Championships, and that of the professional tennis tour until July 13th. The promoters will analyse all possible scenarios, including the postponement of the grass court event to a later date in 2020.
Following the cancellation of The Championships, Wimbledon, the ATP Tour has announced the continued suspension of the ATP Tour until July 13, 2020, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This suspension affects all grass-court series events, including the Mallorca Championships, initially scheduled to take place from June 20th to 27th.
“Regrettably, the ongoing Covid-19 global pandemic leaves us with no choice but to suspend the Tour further; a decision we’ve made in close cooperation with our members and the other governing bodies of tennis,” said Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP Chairman. “Health and safety remain the top priority as we navigate the challenges ahead in these unprecedented times, and we will do everything we can for the Tour to resume at the earliest opportunity once it is safe to do so.”
From the beginning of the global health alert for Covid-19, the organisation of the Mallorca Championships has been in close and continuous communication with the ATP Tour and the competent authorities in order to take appropriate decisions focused on the only important matter at this time, protecting and delivering for the health of all those involved at the event and that of the whole society.
“In the upcoming days and weeks and in close cooperation with the ATP Tour and our tournament partners, we will analyse all possible scenarios for the first edition of the Mallorca Championships, including the possibility of postponement of the tournament to a later date of 2020”, explained Edwin Weindorfer, CEO of e|motion Group, the promoter of the event. “Obviously, the determining factor will always remain the development of the pandemic and the actual health situation in these unprecedented times to allow the resumption of the Tour without any risk to our fans, players, and all those involved in the celebration of the event.”
We would like to inform all ticket buyers, that the organisation of the event will facilitate appropriate and satisfactory solutions to all, from exchange possibilities of tickets to the new dates of the event, to full reimbursement.
We kindly ask all our ticket buyers to be patient while the organisation explores the possibilities of postponement in 2020. All relevant information on this regard can be found on our website, www.mallorca-championships.com, our newsletter communications, and the official tournament social media channels.
