Wimbledon has become the latest sporting event to be cancelled because of the coronavirus crisis.
The tournament was scheduled to take place at the All England Club from June 29 to July 12.
It is with great regret that the AELTC has today decided that The Championships 2020 will be cancelled due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus epidemic. The 134th Championships will instead be staged from 28 June to 11 July 2021. Uppermost in our mind has been the health and safety of all of those who come together to make Wimbledon happen - the public in the UK and visitors from around the world, our players, guests, members, staff, volunteers, partners, contractors, and local residents - as well as our broader responsibility to society's efforts to tackle this global challenge to our way of life.
Meanwhile the ATP and WTA Tours have confirmed they are extending their suspension of the current season until July 13.
In conjunction with the cancellation of The Championships, Wimbledon, the ATP and WTA have jointly announced the continued suspension of the ATP and WTA Tours until July 13, 2020, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Tours had previously announced a suspension of events until June 7. In March, the French Open announced it was moving its Championships from May 24 to August 31.
