Dear Presidents

 

Following the current situation of the COVID-19 – CORONAVIRUS, and the concerns expressed by many nations that will need to travel to the African Junior Championships (14&U and 16&U), the Confederation of African Tennis in consultation with the ITF Development Department, has reviewed the viability of the dates for these important events and decided to postpone them.  In addition it was also decided to postpone the 14 & U junior events listed below for the same reason.
