The sanitary crisis brought about by Covid-19 has put us all in a unique situation these past few weeks.
It is with deep regret that we have to inform you today that the recommendations concerning the new rules by the WTA for the 2020 edition do not allow us to organize this year's tournament with a clear conscience and in alignment with your expectations. The regulations regarding safety and hygiene make it impossible for us to hold an event that would adhere to these conditions. We are therefore forced to postpone the 25th anniversary edition of the WTA tournament in Kockelscheuer until the autumn of 2021.
Our joint effort has not been in vain as having to forgo and having to cancel are by no means the same. Therefore, filled with motivation, we look to the coming year certain that we will be able to organize a successful anniversary edition!
We would like to thank you for your understanding and remain with sporty regards,
Danielle Maas, Tournament Director
for the whole committee of the
BGL BNP Paribas Luxembourg Open
