Kooyong Classic cancelled
Organisers recently cancelled summer tennis event amid ongoing uncertainty in the sport.
The organisers of the Kooyong Classic recently announced their decision to cancel the event scheduled for January 2022.
Kooyong President Adam Cossar said, “We are disappointed having to make this decision but with the great deal of uncertainty over recent months about the arrangements that would be in place in January, it has not been possible to make the necessary plans to deliver the best and safest sporting and hospitality experience for our players, spectators, sponsors, broadcasters, members and event staff”.
The cancellation comes after conflicting reports about whether unvaccinated players will be allowed to compete in summer tennis tournaments.
Last held in 2020, it previously screened on SBS.
“We thank everyone who has supported the tournament over the past 33 years and along with all event partners are looking forward to delivering a bigger and better and even brighter Kooyong Classic in 2023.”
