For the safety of all concerned and because of all the uncertainties and complications resulting from COVID-19, the San Diego District Tennis Association has decided to cancel this year's Tennis Fest, scheduled for Sunday, June 14. We look forward to holding the event in 2021 and thank all the pros and vendors for their continued support. We'll see you next year!
Due to the heightened concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus, effective immediately USTA Southern California will suspend all USTA sanctioned programs and events, including Adult and Junior Tournaments, League Tennis, Junior Team Tennis, USTA Schools programs, Tennis on Campus, Team Challenges, and Wheelchair Events. This suspension is in effect through May 31, 2020.
The health and safety of all players, staff, fans and volunteers are our foremost concern. The USTA’s goal will be to reschedule events where possible following this suspension period. Additionally, recognizing the evolving and fast-changing nature of this situation, the USTA will continue to monitor and assess conditions to make future determinations about events and activities taking place after May 31st.
Further updates will be distributed accordingly through social media channels and at USTAsocal.com.
