Another major event cancelled
The PSA has confirmed that the 2020 Oracle NetSuite Open – originally scheduled for September 22-28 – has been cancelled due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. World No.1s Mohamed ElShorbagy and CIB Raneem El Welily are the current defending champions after beating fellow Egyptians CIB Nour El Tayeb and CIB Tarek Momen, respectively, in last year’s finals.
“Unfortunately, the challenges arising from the COVID-19 outbreak have made it impossible to hold this year’s Oracle NetSuite Open,” said Tournament Promoter John Nimick. “I am hopeful we will be able to showcase the world’s best in San Francisco once again next year and look forward to sharing our plans for the next instalment with all supporters in 2021.”
