Cancellation of Road to Wimbledon India 2020 event in New Delhi and Kolkata
It is with regret that the All England Lawn Tennis Club has decided to cancel the upcoming Road to Wimbledon India event due to take place in New Delhi and Kolkata from Saturday 14 March to Thursday 19 March. The reason for the cancellation is the rapidly evolving Coronavirus situation and as our first and most important priority is the safety and wellbeing of the players taking part, as well as officials and those working on the event to make it a success, we feel that it is the right decision at this time to cancel the event in both New Delhi and Kolkata.
We will work with the All India Tennis Association in exploring alternative selection options for the Road to Wimbledon UK Finals in August 2020, currently planned to go ahead.
It would have been the eighth consecutive year that Road to Wimbledon would have come to India and we were very much looking forward to working with the very best and most promising young players aged 14U to introduce them to grass court tennis, however, the grass courts will still be there and we hope to come back next year instead.
