MEDIA STATEMENT

(13 September, 2019 – Hong Kong) In light of the present situation, Hong Kong Tennis Association and the WTA are announcing a postponement of the 2019 Hong Kong Tennis Open.  The event will no longer take place during 5-13 October.

The Open is the flagship event on our annual calendar and one of the most popular International sporting events in the city, attracting thousands of local fans and overseas travellers every year.

As the winner of the WTA International event of the year award in 2018, we strive to maintain a high standard of the event for all participants, players and the fans in particular.  However, after extensive discussions with our key stakeholders, we conclude that a smooth running of the tournament can be better assured at a later time.

The event organisers and WTA are in active discussion on identifying an alternate week for the hosting of the event.  A further announcement will be made in due course.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused to our players, fans, partners and supporters. Please visit https://www.hktennisopen.hk/en/tickets/refund-procedure/ for details of ticket refund procedures.

Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Hong Kong Tennis Open soon.
