**PLEASE READ BELOW DECISION MADE BY THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ON 3/25/20**
CANCELLATION OF MID-TAC 2020 ANNUAL CHAMPIONSHIP TENNIS TOURNAMENT – JULY 3 – 6, 2020
We hope that you and your family, friends, co-workers and associates are safe and adhering to State directives from your Governor or Mayor. Our hearts and souls go out to anyone who has been directly affected by coronavirus. We also pray that all frontline caregivers and hospitals are receiving the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), ventilators and other important items they so desperately need.
MID-TAC Executive Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Championship Tennis Tournament scheduled for July 3-6, 2020 in Indianapolis, IN [See below flier]. The virus itself raises a number of health concerns but the inability for people to completely protect themselves or know what to avoid while traveling or being in contact with others, makes it almost impossible to know if you are being exposed to coronavirus. MID-TAC does not want to be responsible for any unnecessary risk for any of our players.
This is an early decision which has allowed MID-TAC to cancel the Marriott Hotel Rooms Contract, North Central High School Courts Contract and Carmel Racquet Club Courts Contract without incurring penalties. It may be that there will be less danger by July but we could not wait to make last minute cancellations. All on-line registration links have now been closed. The Marriott Hotel has also emailed Cancellation Notices to anyone who had a reservation.
It is MID-TAC’s desire to maintain the legacy of the Championship Tournament. To that end the 2021 Annual Championship is scheduled to take place July 2-5, 2021 in Indianapolis, IN with some adjustments. More details will be shared in due time on the website at www.midtactennis.org and via email. We look forward to having your support and cooperation through these unprecedented times.
Stay safe and help others as you can!
