Canceled: Istria PlayOut Tennis Classic 2020
In the last few days, the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic has continued to worsen and disrupt the travel plans of many of you, which negatively affected our tournament as well.
Many players had to withdraw from the tournament due to travel restrictions, canceled flights, quarantine measures upon return in their country, as well as personal and financial reasons. That is why we are sad to inform you that the Istria PlayOut tennis tournament 2020 is now canceled.
This was a tough decision to make. Despite all our best efforts to make it happen this year, in the end, the circumstances got the better of us. We apologize to those of you who were able and willing to come to Istria nonetheless and ask for your understanding.
We will try to find a new date for next year, preferably in May, as originally planned. If you want to keep being registered, please let us know and we will transfer your entry and payment to next year's edition. If not, we will refund everybody as soon as possible; just give us some time to process all the payments.
We want to thank everybody for the support you have expressed during these uncertain and hectic times and hope to see you all next year.
Kris, Goran, and Peter
