The tournament organising committee Public Relations Rutendo Chabururuka said the change in plans has been necessitated by the school’s calendar.


Chabururuka pointed out the significance of the Zimbabwe Open in the development of local tennis which made a return following a lengthy absence.


The Zimbabwe Tennis Open which is the pinnacle of local tennis tournaments was last year won by Dennise Atzinger and Vusa Hove.


Players such as Genius Chidzikwe and Martin Dzuwa who went on to represent the country in the Davis Cup used the Zimbabwe Open as their launch pad.
