KSLTA suspends all tennis tournaments until May 31st

Bengaluru, 14 April, 2021   

Owing to the rising number of Covid cases in Karnataka and keeping in mind the safety of the players, the Karnataka State Lawn Tennis Association has decided to suspend all the tennis tournaments across the state starting April 17 until May 31.

“At KSLTA, the safety of the players is of utmost importance. We do not want to take a risk with the health of our players and hence we thought it was better to cancel the existing events and postpone all the tournaments to be held by the KSLTA and all the other tournaments held under the aegis of AITA & KSLTA,” said Sunil Yajaman, Hon.Jt. Secretary, KSLTA. “However, training and practice will be held while following the guidelines from the MHA,” he added.

In an advisory sent to all the academies and coaches, KSLTA has requested them to avoid hosting any private tournaments which may not be under the aegis of AITA or KSLTA as the health and safety of players is most important at this juncture.

KSLTA was one of the first associations in the country to reintroduce competitive tournaments after the first strike of Covid in January and keeping the overall aim of growth and development of the sport in mind, had sanctioned an average of six tournaments per month conducted by various affiliated clubs and academies until now.
