The Hong Kong Tennis Open – due to start on 5th October – has been postponed because of on-going protests.

Hong Kong has for months been rocked by increasingly violent protests, triggered by an extradition bill.
The bill has now been withdrawn, but protests have continued, and have grown to reflect wider demands for democratic reform.

The Hong Kong Tennis Open was originally due to take place between the 5th and 13th of October, at Victoria Park, which has become the rallying point for many of Hong Kong’s anti-government marches.
