Tennis tournaments canceled at Duncan Park tennis courts

NATCHEZ — Almost all tennis tournaments that were scheduled to take place between early April through the rest of the year at the Duncan Park Tennis Courts have been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Henry Harris, Duncan Park supervisor, said that on Wednesday morning that the only tournament that has been rescheduled is a Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce one-day fundraiser.

“It was supposed to take place either the first Friday (today) or the second Friday (May 15) of this month. It will now be in the first Friday in October (Oct. 2),” Harris said. “All (other) tennis tournaments for the rest of the year have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.”

Three local schools and one area school had their hopes of hosting key tournaments at Duncan Park dashed by the coronavirus. They will have to wait until at least next year.

Natchez High School was scheduled to host the MHSAA Region 6-5A Tournament on April 7. Cathedral High School and Adams County Christian School were scheduled to co-host the MAIS District 4-4A Tournament on April 20 while Wilkinson County Christian Academy was to be the host school for the MAIS Class 1A South State Tournament on April 27.

The 41st annual Natchez Community Cancer Tennis Tournament that was to take place June 5-7 has also been canceled, as has the annual Cathedral Fall Festival Tennis Tournament that was to take place in September.
