Joint Statement from USTA Colorado and the Colorado State Open
After thoughtful deliberation, we have collectively made the decision to cancel
the 2020 Colorado State Open, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The
event was to take place September 11th-20th at Gates Tennis Center.
This decision was not made lightly. We are extremely proud of the event –
which is not only the largest sanctioned tennis tournament in the entire
country, but also one of the most lively, festive and enjoyable tournaments on
the calendar each year! We are very sorry to those that were
planning on playing in the event this year as well as our dedicated sponsors.
So much of this is out of our control, but we plan to make the 2021
Colorado State Open even bigger and better than the past. Thanks for
your support and understanding.
We wish everyone a healthy and safe rest of the year and hope to see you on the

As with all public activity, there is an assumption of risk that each player takes on when choosing to participate. Obviously, if you are not feeling well or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or if you are concerned with your own health during the pandemic, please do not participate until such time as you are healthy and feel more comfortable.
